  1. begin by prepping my ingredients. Slice avocado down the middle, remove the seed, and remove each half from the skin. This recipe makes two salads, so slice each half to use one half per salad. To prepare the grapefruit, remove a section from the bottom and the top using a paring knife Place the bottom on a flat surface, and guide your paring knife down the sides to remove all of the skin and the pith {white part surrounding the flesh}. Cut the segments between the membranes. If you want to get fancy, these segments are called supremes.
  2. To make the vinaigrette, combine the lemon juice and lime juice. Whisk in the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Now you are ready to build your salad. Begin with a bag of baby kale. If baby kale is not available, you could always substitute arugula or baby spinach. Watercress is a fun option as well. Add the grapefruit segments and avocado slices. Top with shelled pistachios and crumbled goat cheese. Drizzle lightly with the citrus vinaigrette and serve.
