For the fruit salad, peel and slice the avocado. Sprinkle it with 1 tablespoon of lime juice. Peel, seed and slice the papaya thinly. Sprinkle with the remaining lime juice. Peel the oranges and grapefruit. Cut the fruit into segments. Slice the red onion. In a large bowl, combine the avocado, papaya, orange and grapefruit segments and onion. Set aside. If you are using pomegranate, scoop out seeds and set them aside in a small bowl.

To serve, pour the dressing over the fruit and toss well. Spoon onto a lettuce-lined platter or large bowl. Sprinkle the pomegranate seeds over it all.

A Super Healthy Recipe

This is a VERY healthy fruit and vegetable salad recipe. Each and every ingredient in it brings a wonderful array of nutrients and health benefits to your meal. It is also a good diabetes recipe.

The authors suggest that it is especially good with Mexican food (which I am sure it is), but I think it’s also much more versatile than that.

Give it a try.
