Avocado and grapefruit salad tips

Avocado is a superfood for a reason as it has loads of great vitamins and minerals but most well known for those healthy fats. They are great for your joints and immune system. The grapefruit is packed with vitamin C and adds some colour to your bowl. You can boost your salad by adding some tomatoes, sliced peppers and some feta cheese just for the tastiness.
