Asian Avocado & Pink Grapefruit Salad

You’ll love the way this Asian-inspired dressing will play with the creamy nuttiness of avocado and the bright, puckery notes of grapefruit. Pairs beautifully with tofu, fish, and chicken.

Tip: If you don’t keep a spice grinder in your house, you can wrap the coriander seeds in tinfoil or a plastic bag, and beat the packet with something heavy, like a hammer or cast iron pan, to crack the seeds.
