After seeing, bluesarahlou's orange caprese salad I became obsessed about giving citrus a try with basil and fresh mozzarella. At the time I didn't have any oranges on hand, so I substituted grapefruit. Rather than make an appetizer, I decided to make this for a really easy dinner! I added half an avocado and mix together balsamic vinegar and basil olive oil. The combination of tart, creamy and nutty was divine! I think this would be great on top of a bed of butter lettuce too!
