Arugula, Avocado & Grapefruit Salad

I love a tasty and refreshing summer salad. This salad is both satisfying and also loaded with hydrating and energizing summer produce like avocados and grapefruit. Avocado is a source of healthy, anti-inflammatory fat that can also help to promote balanced blood sugar, while the grapefruit is hydrating, packed with immune-boosting vitamin C (great for warding off those summer colds), and is also a cooling food, making it great for these hot summer days.
