  1. With a serrated knife cut the zest and pith from the grapefruits and working over a bowl, cut the flesh into section, discarding the membranes and reserving 6 tablespoons of the juice.
  2. Peel and pit the avocados and cut them into 12 wedges. In a bowl sprinkle the avocados with 3 tablespoons of the reserved grapefruit juice, coating them thoroughly.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 3 tablespoons grapefruit juice, the vinegar, mustard, paprika, and salt and pepper to taste, add the oil in a stream, whisking, and whisk the dressing until it is emulisfied.
  4. In a large bowl toss the watercress with two thirds of the dressing and divide it among 4 salad plates. Top the watercress decoratively with the avocado wedges, drained, and the grapefruit sections, sprinkle the salads with the Roquefort, and drizzle them with the remaining dressing.
