Bibb Lettuce with Grapefruit, Avocado, and Creamy Avocado Dressing - Pure Food Cookbook

Salad, Recipe, Vegetarian, Pure Food Cookbook

As a vegetarian it can be really difficult to find a cookbook with satisfying yet easy meals to prepare for everyone to enjoy. I recently received a copy of Pure Food and I quickly realized this book was different from all the rest. 
Author Veronica Bosgraaf is the founder of Pure Bar and extremely passionate living a pure, healthy lifestyle. I absolutely love her Michigan roots and traditional Midwestern recipes that are transformed into a healthier version. Best of all this cookbook is sectioned out by month to ensure each recipe is using ingredients that are in season.

As someone who's addicted to avocados I was really excited to try this Bibb Lettuce salad with grapefruit, avocado and a creamy avocado dressing. For a healthy lunch this salad is my new go-to option and perfect for serving this Easter.

1 head Bibb lettuce
1 pink grapefruit (peeled and sectioned)
1 medium avocado (peeled, pitted and sliced)
1/2 cup slivered almonds

1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 medium avocado (peeled, pitted and sliced)
juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Carefully remove the core of the lettuce and rinse well. Remove the leaves and lay them in a serving bowl. Top the lettuce with the grapefruit, avocado, and almonds and toss gently to combine. 

For the dressing, combine the oil, honey, avocado, lime and orange juice in a blender. Season with salt and pepper and puree until smooth.
