Grapefruit, Orange, and Avocado Salad Recipe
It is going to be a sunshine weekend. Tomorrow we are going to do a lot of yard work. I am looking forward to planting flowers in our widow boxes and flower beds. I think we will wait one more week to plant our garden, just to be safe. Utah weather is tricky, but I am hoping we are done with snow for a long time.
When the weather warms up, we like to create light and easy salads for lunch and dinners. We love making this grapefruit, orange, and avocado salad. It is simple and bursting with flavor. I love the contrast of the tart grapefruit with the sweet orange slices. The avocado adds a nice creaminess to the salad. For the dressing, I just squeeze a little bit of fresh grapefruit juice and orange juice over the salad, but feel free to use your favorite dressing. Josh also likes to add feta cheese to his salad.
This tangy and refreshing salad is perfect for any spring or summer meal.
