Avocado and Grapefruit Salad
This simple colorful salad is easy to make. We eat a lot of grapefruit so I was happy to come up with this pleasing combination. The honey in the dressing enhances the taste of both fruits.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
- 4 Bibb or Boston lettuce leaves
- 1 medium grapefruit, peeled
