Citrus Avocado Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette

A plate of Citrus Avocado Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette

It's beginning to look a lot like summer, and this citrus avocado salad is the perfect treat to get you ready for the warmer days to come. Low- calorie, light but satisfying flavors. Grapefruit, avocado and pineapple are beneficial for somewhere who is watching their weight.    Grapefruit is also good because it clears up skin. I really enjoy eating avocado and pineapple because avocado helps control appetite while pineapple boosts energy!
