Yield: 6 servings.

Refreshingly spring-like!


  • 1 small head iceberg lettuce
  • 1 medium-size ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 3 oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 small red onion, sliced paper-thin and separated into rings
  • Celery Seed Dressing


Line six small salad bowls (preferably glass) with lettuce leaves; break the remaining lettuce into bite-size pieces, dividing among the bowls. Arrange avocado slices, orange sections, grapefruit sections and onion rings on top of the lettuce in each bowl. Sprinkle each with about 1 tablespoon of Celery Seed Dressing and pass extra dressing when serving the salads.

Celery Seed Dressing


  • 1 teaspoon grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 cup salad oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar


Combine all the ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake until well blended.
