Grilled Swordfish with Grapefruit Avocado Salsa

I'm on a grapefruit and avocado obsession lately. The textures and flavors are so complimentary-the rich and accomodating avocado a perfect backdrop for the assertive and sweet-tart grapefruit. Mixed with a bit of salt, lime juice, and cilantro it turns into an quick and easy salsa that I spooned accross grilled swordfish, which had been marinating in lime juice and a touch of honey.

Watercress, Grapefruit and Avocado Salad

I picked up this homegrown incredibly fresh watercress this week at Farmer's market. I supremed the grapefruit, catching all the juices as I peeled and segmented the sections. I added a couple teaspoons of rice wine vinegar and some salt. pepper, diced scallion, and olive oil to make a vinaigrette. Toss the water cress in the vinaigrette and drain. Arrange the grapefruit segments and avocado slices over the cress and drizzle with additional vinaigrette.
