  • 4Servings


  • 2 red grapefruits
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 onion rolls, split


Slice off the ends of each grapefruit and place the fruit cut side down on a cutting board. Slice off the peel and pith. Working over a bowl, make a cut on either side of each segment to release it from the membrane into the bowl. Squeeze the remaining juice into a saucepan; add the vinegar and honey and simmer over medium-high heat until syrupy. Add to the grapefruit sections.

Meanwhile, preheat a grill pan to medium-high. Add the scallions and cook until slightly charred; cool and thinly slice. Add the scallions and avocado to the grapefruit segments.

Preheat a grill pan to medium. In a bowl, combine the pork and onion powder; season with salt. Shape into 4 patties. Grill the patties, turning once, until cooked, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, spread the butter on the rolls and grill until toasted. Place a patty on each roll bottom. Top with the grapefruit-avocado salad and the roll tops.
