Grapefruit, Avocado, and Walnut Salad with Tarragon Dressing


1 pink grapefruit
1 head butter lettuce, separated into leaves

Using a small, sharp knife, remove peel and white pith of grapefruit. Working over a large bowl to catch the juice, cut between grapefruit membranes, slicing out segments. Place lettuce on a large plate. Arrange grapefruit sections and avocado atop greens. Drizzle salad with dressing, sprinkle with walnuts, and serve.
