Tuesday: Grapefruit and Avacado Salad

This is a colorful dish. Easy, delicious, and healthy. My three year old loves this salad!

What you need:
avocados, peeled, pitted and chopped
small red onion, thinly sliced (use to taste, I would not put in a whole one).
dressing of choice
olive oil
chicken (optional)

What to do:
1. Cut up your grapefruit. Make sure to take all that white pith off of it. It won't be good in the salad with it. If you are serving younger children you might want to cut the grapefruit pretty small.
2. Peel and chop your avocado. (I think this is the worlds best food!)
3. Peel and chop just a bit of red onion.
4. Mix together and serve with grilled chicken breasts (optional) and your dressing.

We ate our salad with home made apple sauce and freshly made wheat rolls.

What kind of dressing did you use or do you recommend? I'd hate to ruin the lovely salad with a poor dressing choice! TIA!

Stacey~ we used Wishbone "Red Wine Mist" which is one of their salad spritzers. It was really good and light on this salad. I have heard of people using Italian but that did not sound great to us. Please let me know what you try!

Had this last night...thanks so much for the idea! I've often put avacado in my salad, but I loved the pairing of the avacado with the grapefruit. I whipped up a homemade red wine vinagarette and it was great!
