¼ cup water

1. Peel and thinly slice onion. Combine ¼ cup rice vinegar, honey and water in jar with tightfitting lid; shake until well-blended. Add onions; shake to coat in liquid. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 6 hours. (If necessary, shake jar 2-3 times during the 6 hours to be sure onions marinate evenly.)

3. Pare and slice oranges; remove seeds. Slice avocado.

4. Arrange endive and/or romaine leaves in spoke-like fashion on individual plates. Portion orange, avocado and grapefruit pieces in center spokes. Lift onions from liquid with fork; transfer to top of each salad. Drizzle with dressing; serve.
