For the poppy seed vinaigrette

  • ¼ cup Aunt Vera's Red Wine Vinegar
  • tsp poppy seeds
  • 2 tsp minced red onion
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • tsp dry mustard
  • ½ tsp salt, or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup DLM Pure Olive Oil

For the salad

  • 1 head bibb lettuce
  • ¼ cup parsley leaves
  • 1 large Sweet Scarletts Texas Red Grapefruit
  • 3 Tbsp roasted whole macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup shredded Manchego cheese
  • 1 medium avocado
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 6 Tbsp poppy seed vinaigrette


For the poppy seed vinaigrette: In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the vinegar, poppy seeds, red onion, garlic, mustard, salt, sugar, and pepper. Slowly drizzle in the oil while whisking to emulsify.
For the salad: Wash and thoroughly dry the lettuce and parsley. Break leaves into pieces. Peel and section the grapefruit.
Mix the lettuce, parsley, nuts, and cheese in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Before serving, peel and dice the avocado into large chunks. Add a couple tablespoons of the Poppy Seed Vinaigrette and toss lightly. Add the grapefruit sections on top. Drizzle grapefruit with a bit more vinaigrette and serve. You will have extra dressing for another salad.
