Healthy Snack Recipes: Grapefruit and Avocado Salad

Introducing you to a healthy vegan snack that you can prepare in less than five minutes! It doesn't get easier than this when it comes to healthy eating on the go!

All you need are lusciously ripe avocados, grapefruits and a hint of basil to make this special "salad."Use it as a daytime snack or lunch time side. As one of my 5 ingredients or less recipes, it's super simple!

The best part about this grapefruit and avocado salad recipe is that you get some mega nutrients - think fiber, healthy fats, carbs for energy and a hint of protein from the avocado. Together, this nutrient combo will keep you going and fuller for longer.

I'm also including here a fit foodie extra of some homemade Maple & Mustard Dressing to add a kick to this healthy salad!

Makes: 10 to 12 depending on fruit size 
Total Time: 5 minutes
