    1                    grapefruit juice

 Remove stems from spinach.  Wash spinach throughly and dry.  Tear leaves
 into bite-size pieces.  Wrap gently in paper towels and refrigerate in
 zip-lock bags until ready to toss salad.  Peel and section grapefruit.
 Slice avocados into quarters, then cut each slice into two inch chunks.  At
 serving time, toss spinach with vinaigrette. Add grapefruit and avocados and
 gently toss again.  Or, arrange grapefruit and avocado slices decoratively
 on bed of dressed spinach on individual serving plates.  Pass additional
 dressing, if desired.
 
 Grapefruit Vinaigrette
 Place the grapefruit juice, the lemon juice, the orance juice and the sugar
 into a small sauce pan over medium heat.  Reduce to about 2 tablespoons.
 Transfer to a glass bowl and add the champagne vinegar and oil.  Salt to
 taste.  Makes about 1 cup.
