THYME SEARED SCALLOPS WITH RED GRAPEFRUIT AVOCADO SALAD

thyme seared scallops

The addition of scallops turns a traditional grapefruit and avocado salad into an elegant entrée. The antioxidant duo of thyme leaves and a hint of ginger gives this dish an unexpected, yet perfect pairing of flavors.

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Ingredients

• 2 large red grapefruits, peeled and sectioned (1½ cups)
• 1 medium avocado, peeled and thinly sliced
• 2 tablespoons champagne or white wine vinegar
• 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
