Middle Eastern Avocado Citrus Salad

Posted on | August 22, 2011 | 4 Comments

My husband and I really love to eat salads.  We enjoy eating healthy.  I am always on the lookout for new salad recipes to change up our routine and menu a little.  When I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it.  We love avocados and citrus fruits; and the dressing is very similar to one of my homemade vinaigrettes.  This just had to be good…    

This recipe makes 2 servings if the salad is served as a main dish.  If served as a side dish it will yield 4-6 servings.  Enjoy!



  • 1 head Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 2 avocados, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 oranges, peeled, segmented, and then cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled, segmented, and then cut into bite-size pieces
  • black sesame seeds


  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (preferably raw, unfiltered)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp finely grated orange zest


Arrange the Romaine lettuce, the avocado pieces, and the grapefruit and orange pieces on plates.   Sprinkle black sesame seeds on the salads.

In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing.  Either pour the dressing over the salad or serve in a small bowl on the side.   

Serve immediately.

Guten Appetit!!!

    Mmm, I love avocado! This is similar to a salad we used to make when we were living in California. The addition of the black sesame seeds is a nice touch.
