- Why Choose Sharp?
Did you know that California produces 90 percent of the U.S. avocado crop, and 60 percent of that comes from San Diego County? Avocado — a fruit that offers more than 20 vitamins, minerals any phytonutrients in each serving — is the star ingredient in this citrusy fruit salad.
This recipe is just the thing to keep your taste buds smiling and your waistline in check. Try this light, summery treat for lunch, as a starter before your main dish, or as a refreshing snack. You’ll not only enjoy the medley of sweet and tangy flavors, but also the fact that this dish is loaded with vitamin C — an antioxidant that contributes to healthy cell growth.
In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients, set aside.
In a large salad bowl, combine baby greens, kiwi, grapefruit, strawberries and star fruit. Pour on dressing and toss to coat. Top with avocado slices.
