Avocado & Pink Grapefruit Salad

Grapefruit + Avocado + Me + Lunch = L-O-V-E

Let's give a shout-out to citrus fruits for bringing out the best in creamy avocados.  The two play off each other wonderfully, making the perfect couple.  Sort of reminiscent of Adam Levine and yours truly........(wishful thinking on my part of course)

In all seriousness this salad is beautiful, simple, and heavenly.  Heed my advice and make it for yourself, nothing will brighten up your Monday like this pretty plate of deliciousness.  Feel free to show your gratitude with Thank You Cards, shoes, wine, or diamonds, I'm really not fussy.

Bon Appetit.  Love JS.

Avocado & Pink Grapefruit Salad

1 small ripe avocado
1 pink grapefruit
1/2 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp liquid honey
1/2 Tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped

sea salt & pepper to taste

In small dish, mix together lime juice, olive oil, honey.  Set aside.
Using a sharp knife, cut off top and bottom of grapefruit so it sits steadily on a cutting board, then remove peel and pith in strips from top to bottom.  Slice grapefruit into disk-shaped pieces and arrange on plate.  
Split, pit and peel avocado and slice it lengthwise into 8 pieces.  Add avocado to plate with sliced grapefruit.
Drizzle dressing over top of fruit and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Garnish with chopped mint.

Serves 1 (as main) or 2 (as a side)
