grapefruit + avacado = love

This is my favorite salad of all time! It's so easy to make.

What you need:
2 medium or large red or pink grapefruit
2 ripe avocados
6 cups salad (I prefer arugula or spring mix)

-Peel the grapefruit, removing the white membrane. (Cut between the inner membranes to remove the segments of the fruit.)
-Peel and pit avocados; cut lengthwise into 1/2 inch thick slices.
-Divide salad mix between four plates; arrange an equal amount of grapefruit and avocado on each plate.
-Top with your favorite vinaigrette.

For a wonderful homemade vinaigrette, try this:
Juice 2 limes. Whisk juice from lime with 1 tbs fresh mint leaves, 2 tsp honey, 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil (or canola oil), 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp ground pepper.
