Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2


  • 1 grapefruit, sectioned
  • 1/3 cup kale, chopped
  • 1 haas avocado, cut in chunks
  • 1/2 bulb fennel, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Section the grapefruit over a bowl so that it catches the sections and excess juice. Squeeze the rind/pith into the bowl for extra juice, and then discard.
  • Add kale to the bowl and use your fingers to rub the grapefruit juice into the kale. Tip: Rubbing the juice in keeps the kale from being overly tough.
  • Add the avocado, fennel, olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to the kale and grapefruit bowl. Toss gently with a spoon. Tip: Let the salad sit for 10-15 minutes so that the flavor can soak in.


  • If you want to eat this salad as and entree, I recommend adding and additional cup of kale and topping it with grilled shrimp.
