Avocado Citrus Salad



                       There are some things in life that taste so good that you think of them for
          days. This citrus salad is one of them...almost as good as a piece of cake. This is
         how lunches should be. Healthy and full of flavor. Make this tonight for dinner
         and savor the flavors with a glass of wine.

                                                              Avocado Citrus Salad

       1 grapefruit, peel and pith removed
       1 large navel orange, peel and pith removed
       1 blood orange, peel and pith removed
       3 cups of romaine lettuce
       2 radishes, trimmed and sliced
       2 tablespoons of olive oil
       2 scallions, sliced thin
       salt and pepper
     
      1) Working over a medium bowl cut out grapefruit and orange segments,
      then squeeze juice from membranes.
      2) Place salad on a platter and top with avocados, radishes and citrus segments
      with juices. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper.



          I would like to give my talented and good friend Jesse - from goodgirlgoneglad a
         big shout out today. She just designed the new look for my blog and she had a -
         greater vision for it than I ever dreamed. Stop by her and say hello to her.
