  1. Step 1

    Top and tail one of the grapefruits, then use a small serrated knife to cut away lengths of peel and pith from top to bottom. Once you’re left with a neat globe of grapefruit, cut between the pith to make individual segments then halve.
  2. Step 2

    Put the avocado in a bowl. Halve the second grapefruit and squeeze over the juice from one of the halves. Add the cucumber and grapefruit segments to the bowl.
  3. Step 3

    Squeeze the juice from the second grapefruit half into a separate bowl with 1 tbsp olive oil, the buttermilk and sugar. Season with a little salt and whisk to make a dressing.
  4. Step 4

    Divide the lambs lettuce between plates. Add the avocado and grapefruit mix, then the crab. Spoon the dressing over to serve.
