Radish, Avocado & Grapefruit Salad
Truth be told, when I first saw this pretty salad on Lorelei's Tiny Kitchen, I thought, "ehhh." Yes, it's beautiful and very Springy-looking, but just seemed waaaay too healthy to actually taste good. Boy, was I wrong.
I assembled all the ingredients just like Lorelei did, and then I tossed in a homemade champagne vinaigrette and: WOW. I could eat a trough of this. (I think of everything in terms of gluttonous portions meant for hogs...to me, this means it tastes good.) For a hearty meat and potatoes girl like myself, I was pleasantly surprised to find I absolutely loved this unique salad.
Plus, I learned how to supreme citrus. How I got this far in life without knowing how to do this, I'll never know, but this Youtube video helped out immensely and made my grapefruit segments come out picture perfect.
