Friday 2/27

Avocado Citrus Salad

3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Salt and pepper
2 heads romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
4 pink grapefruits, peeled and cut into segments
2 Hass avocados, thinly sliced
1 cup (about 6 ounces) pitted kalamata olives
1. In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil into the vinegar, pouring in a thin, steady stream; season with salt and pepper.
2. Place the lettuce in a large bowl or on a platter, add half the dressing and toss to coat. Add the grapefruit, avocado, and olives, drizzle with the remaining dressing and toss gently.

Now I will probably need some protein and after all it is Friday night. So I will bake up some chicken thighs in some balsamic vinegar and add this to dinner. Along with some cupcakes! Remember it's Friday night!
