Grapefruit and Avocado Salad

A Bright, Healthy Salad for Summertime


This particular salad is not your run-of-the-mill green salad. However, it is a great balance of sweet and sour, bright and earthy. It's filling, but light and it always reminds me of the summertime or later in the year, it can be a really nice alternative to soups and stews. You can also add grilled chicken, if you want to really make a meal out of it. You may recognize the vinaigrette from a previous post! Aaaand now I'm hungry for salad again.


Ingredients

1 large grapefruit, supremed
1 ripe avocado, sliced

In a large salad bowl, thoroughly toss the lettuce with the vinaigrette until every leaf is evenly coated.

Then, top with the grapefruit, avocado and Brie. I also add a crank or two of ground black pepper to add depth.
