To make grapefruit vinaigrette:
grapefruit juice with ginger, champagne vinegar,
For salad: Toss endive leaves, heirloom tomato wedges and ruby red grapefruit wedges with grapefruit vinaigrette. Place in center of serving plate.
Place 1/2 lobster tail on top of endive/tomato/grapefruit salad, reserving claw.
Place a tuft of mache greens over lobster and salad. Place 1/4 avocado, cut into wedges, over mache. Place lobster claw on top. Add additional mache to lightly cover claw, so the claw is just peeking through. Garnish with additional Grapefruit Vinaigrette, chive batons, chive oil and fleur de sel.
