Beet, Avocado and Pink Grapefruit Salad with Sherry Dressing

READY IN: 2hrs
Top Review by susie cooks

This is so great. I used less olive oil, maybe 1/2 cup. Very refreshing! The avocado was creamy and the pomegranate seeds (from Trader Joe's - they sell just the seeds!) were crunchy with a little tang. We loved this salad and it is on my menu for this weekend!
