A fruit unlike any other, avocado is a fibrous and heart-healthy way to bring creamy texture to any dish. In this light and refreshing summer fruit salad, the mildness of avocado offsets the zesty grapefruit perfectly, making for a flavorsome and vitamin-filled meal.

  1. Peel and section the grapefruit. Pour lemon juice over the avocado slices to prevent discoloring. Keep the leftover juice to the side.(1 minute)
  2. In a large salad bowl, toss the avocado, grapefruit, lettuce, and onions.(3 minutes)
  3. In a small container, mix the leftover lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, salt, cumin, and pepper. Pour dressing over the salad and toss before serving.(2 minutes)
  4. Top the mixture with the cherry tomatoes and walnuts, and enjoy immediately.(1 minute)
