Meatless Monday’s Summer Salad

grapefruitavocadoIn these hot humid days of August, nothing feels better than a light refreshing summer salad.  We love this simple salad and the myriad of variations possible.  Our favorite way with this citrus combo is over a bed of Boston or bib lettuce.  The delicate texture and flavor do not overwhelm and anti up the hydration factor.  Enjoy!
