- 1/4 cup Organic Hemp Seed Oil
- 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 shallot, minced (about 1 Tbsp)
- 1 tsp Organic Coconut Sugar
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
- Candied Pecans: Preheat oven to 325°F. Toss together pecans, coconut sugar, oil, salt, cayenne and cinnamon; scatter in single layer onto parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Bake for 8 or 10 minutes or until golden brown and candied, rotating pan halfway through cooking time. Let cool completely.
- Hemp Oil Vinaigrette: Whisk together oil, vinegar, shallot, coconut sugar, mustard, salt and pepper.
- Using a sharp paring knife, peel grapefruit, following the natural curve of the fruit to remove bitter white pith. Working over a bowl to catch the juices, cut between membranes to release segments. Add 1 Tbsp juice to vinaigrette (reserve remaining juice for another use).
- Toss arugula with vinaigrette; toss gently with grapefruit and avocado. Transfer to serving platter; top with hempseeds and Candied Pecans.
