Tart and tangy grapefruit provides the foil for fatty, rich-tasting avocado. Tarragon is a French herb, with long blade-like shaped leaves, that has a light, licorice aroma. If you can’t find it, mint works just as well.
Place the tarragon or mint, olive oil, vinegar, mustard, chili powder, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl; whisk well to combine. Add the greens and toss well. Top with the grapefruit and the avocado, and serve immediately.
For Vata: Swap the grapefruit for oranges.
For Pitta: Swap the grapefruit for oranges.
For Kapha: Cut one of the avocados and add an additional grapefruit.
