Grapefruit-Avocado Salad

Prep: 18 minutes. To remove citrus fruits' bitter white pith, cut the peel away with a sharp knife. This recipe makes more dressing than you'll need; you can refrigerate the extra for up to 5 days.
Makes 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup greens, about 1/2 cup grapefruit mixture, and 2 tablespoons dressing)

1 peeled navel orange, cut into sections
1/2 red pepper, chopped

4 cups field greens


1. Combine first 4 ingredients (through honey) in a food processor or blender, or use a handheld immersion blender, and process for 1 minute until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
