Grapefruit and Avocado salad

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.
