Preparation / Directions:
Remove stems from spinach. Wash spinach thoroughly and dry. Tear leaves into bite-size pieces. Wrap gently in paper towels and refrigerate in zip-lock bags until ready to toss salad. Peel and section grapefruit.
Slice avocados into quarters, then cut each slice into two inch chunks. At serving time, toss spinach with vinaigrette. Add grapefruit and avocados and gently toss again. Or, arrange grapefruit and avocado slices decoratively on bed of dressed spinach on individual serving plates. Pass additional dressing, if desired.
Place the grapefruit juice, the lemon juice, the orange juice and the sugar into a small sauce pan over medium heat. Reduce to about 2 tablespoons. Transfer to a glass bowl and add the champagne vinegar and oil. Salt to taste.
Makes about 1 cup.
