Avocado and Grapefruit Salad over Arugula

I really wasn't sure about the combination
of grapefruit and avocado. It just doesn't
sound right but how could I make a judgement when
I haven't tried the two fruits together. The only
way to make a decision about this combo ~ avocado
and grapefruit ~ was to give it a try.

My friend C from
made me think of this recipe when
she posted "Cooking to Combat Cancer".
Both avocado and grapefruit are cancer
fighting foods.
Avocados contain a powerful
antioxidant that contains free radicals in
the body and grapefruit contain monoterpenes,
which help prevent cancer by sweeping
carcinogens out of the body.

Avocado and Grapefruit Salad over Arugula
1 1/2 cups of Arugula
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 - 1/2 cup good olive oil
1-2 ripe Hass avocados
1 large red grapefruits
(taste the dressing and add more
of the ingredients based on what you like).

I would say the combination is good.
The salad is beautiful with the green and pink.
The dressing ties everything together.

Give it a try and see what you think.
