We’re giving away $50 in PERKS BUCKS for every published recipe submission.  Submit your favorite holiday recipe by emailing

This yummy dish was submitted by Jenna B. in Portland.  She says this is a go-to for her holidays and it impresses every time.  We tend to think having something a little lighter and little crisper on the table would be A-OK.

Avocado Citrus Salad

  • 1 avocado, large dice
  • 1 grapefruit, supremed, juice reserved (OR grab one of those pre-pack cups of grapefruit in the refrigerated produce section)
  • 1 orange, supremed, juice reserved (in a pinch use a can of mandarins, discard the water)
  • 2T pine nuts, best if you take a sec to toast them
  • 1 bag pre-washed Mesclun mix

Toss the avocado and the citrus juices. Then toss with the rest of the ingredients. That’s it! There’s no dressing because the ingredients meld so well together.
