Creamy and buttery avocado juxtaposed against the crunchy bite of red onion,with a juicy burst of sweet-tart grapefruit all come together to create a fresh, clean, healthy and absolutely delicious salad. Wonderful both as a starter or as a side to a piece of grilled fish or chicken, you will love the ease and beauty of this salad. It’s always the first to go when it’s on a buffet, and people clamor for the recipe. How often does a salad make you feel like a rock star? Not often enough, but if you’re craving a little attention, bring this to your next potluck or serve it on your Easter buffet, and await the applause!
