Grapefruit Avocado Salad

I love creating simple salads by mixing up groceries I have on hand. Salads are really easy to improvise with since exact measurements aren’t always necessary, with the exception of the dressing. When I lived in New York City, I used to go down to Chelsea market on the weekends and purchase fresh produce for the week. Sometimes, I’d tell the vegetable guy to throw anything he might think would go well together. One week, he insisted I took home avocados and learn to make guacamole. Well, the guacamole never happened since I didn’t buy chips or the ingredients to make tacos. This was also during a time my roommate insisted that eating one grapefruit in the morning would help her loose weight. Let’s just say we had a fridge full of grapefruits! One night, I decided to experiment by mixing grapefruit and avocados into a salad. I made a simple dressing that sweetened the grapefruit just enough for me to eat it, and it was delicious.
