A classic duo
Nostalgic salad with a lighter touch
When friends and family from the East visited as I was growing up, my mother liked to show off Western differences by serving grapefruit and avocado salad. To these outlanders, the salad was as novel as avocados were exotic.
Avocados eventually lost their exoticness, and as food fashions changed, the salad got a little rusty and faded into the background.
