Makes 4 to 6 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes (plus marinating time of 6 hours)
    1     medium red onion
    1/2     cup rice vinegar,
            divided
    1/4     cup honey, plus
            1 tablespoon
    1/4    cup of water
    1/2     cup olive oil
    2     oranges, plus two  teaspoons of orange zest
    1     avocado, halved,  pitted and skin removed
    1     grapefruit, peeled and sliced, seeds removed
        Endive and/or  romaine lettuce spears

Marinated Onions
: Peel and thinly slice red onion. Combine 1/4 cup rice vinegar, 1/4 cup honey and water in jar with tight lid; shake well until blended. Add onions to jar. Shake to coat onions in liquid, then refrigerate at least 6 hours. If necessary, shake jar occasionally to be sure onions marinate evenly.

Dressing: Combine oil, 1/4 cup rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey and orange zest in a small jar with a lid.

Salad: Pare and slice oranges; remove seeds. Slice avocado. For each appetizer-salad serving, arrange endive and/or romaine on individual plates. Portion oranges, avocado and grapefruit slices onto the center spokes of the lettuce. Lift marinated onions from liquid with a fork and transfer to the top of each salad. Drizzle with dressing before serving.
