Now that the holiday rush is over, I find my self craving fresh and light meals. Don’t get me wrong, I love the cookie plates and green bean casseroles as much as everyone else, but now that it’s over my body is asking for a little bit of a detox.
I sometimes find it hard to make really delicious salads throughout the winter due to the lack of fresh, ripe ingredients. This grapefruit and avocado salad has become a staple for me. Delicious Grapefruits and avocados can be found just about anywhere this time of year and they add a refreshing flavor to any salad. I like to finish mine with shaved Parmesan and a drizzle of olive oil. I have found that this salad has so much flavor that I can skip the dressing all together.
Grapefruit and Avocado Salad
1 grapefruit, sliced into wedges
1 avocado, sliced and scooped out
Simply top your greens with the sliced avocado and grapefruit. Add your favorite cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.
