Grapefruit Walnut Almond Salad with Avocado Greek Yogurt Dressing

rainbow saladThis salad is my new favorite thing to eat. It is bright and colorful which is everything we need in our lives right now. A student told me yesterday that the clouds should be out of snow by now. She’s over it and so is everyone else I know. Bright pink grapefruit with lovely green lettuces, walnuts, almonds, and a yogurt avocado dressing. Delish.

avocado dressingI love it so it so much it is my new favorite snack. I can attest that it transported well to work. I packed the dressing in a separate container just to make sure nothing got soggy. Shaking things up from my usual afternoon smoothie. It is a bright spot in my day, especially since grapefruit is involved. I love this fruit, I know I’ve said it before, but grapefruit is the best part of winter for me. protein dressing I made this dressing with mashed avocado, salt and pepper, greek yogurt, and some water to thin it out. Pretty easy. Is there snow from 3 weeks ago still on the ground outside? Yes. Are we supposed to get an additional 6-10 inches tomorrow? Yes. Maybe Spring will show up next week, but until then we’ll eat this winter salad.
