When you’re sick of winter and unable to take another bite of soup or stew, treat yourself to this salad. Crunchy and bursting with flavor, it’s a welcome diversion from the heavy comfort food of winter. Thanks to the citrus and avocado, it dresses itself.


  • 2 small fennel bulbs, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 ruby red grapefruits, supremed and juice reserved (see Tip)
  • 2


  1. Combine the fennel, grapefruit segments and juice, cabbage, bell pepper, and lime juice in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then toss to combine. (At this point, you can refrigerate the salad overnight.)
  2. When ready to serve, add the cilantro and toss to combine. Divide into bowls, then divide avocado and walnuts evenly between salads.
