Avocado, Beet & Grapefruit Salad

Photo: McLean Photography

*serves 2


6 small organic beets
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 Uncle Matt’s Florida avocado
1 small Uncle Matt’s grapefruit
A handful of chopped pistachios or walnuts
A handful of micro greens or your favorite organic greens
Organic olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar
Maldon sea salt (kosher salt works too)


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Trim the ends of the beets. If large, cut in half. Place them on a sheet of foil and drizzle with olive oil. Place another sheet of foil on top, and crimp the edges to form a “pouch.” Place on a baking sheet, cut a few slits in the top of the pouch to let steam escape and roast in oven for an hour, or until beets are pierced easily with a paring knife. Remove from oven and let cool, then remove skin by rubbing vigorously with a paper towel. Slice into 1/2″ thick slices.

Peel and remove the membrane from the grapefruit. Cut crosswise into 1/2″ thick slices, then cut in half to form half-circles.

Peel and seed the avocado, then cut into 1/2″ thick slices.

Divide grapefruit between 2 plates, arranging them in a circular pattern. Top with avocado slices, then beets. Scatter microgreens and pistachios all over, then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Finish with a sprinkle of sea salt.

Rave Reviews

You guys are awesome. Thanks for providing us with a good quality orange juice. I have been a customer ever since I tasted your product. Just a few days ago, I tasted the Minute Maid orange juice and I was DISGUSTED. It tasted like orange flavored water. Yours tastes like oranges and the best part is that it’s organic. SO thank you for this great product of yours, I am a customer for life! — Tony
