This is a really easy and delicious salad - especially if you can find pomegranate seeds (Trader Joe's carries them). Assembles quickly. I didn't have fresh basil, used less red onion, and tossed it with baby spinach. Served it at a luncheon with 3-layer finger sandwiches, and it was the perfect counterpoint. Will definitely make again.
Pink Grapefruit & Avocado Salad
From EatingWell: January/February 2012
This is a special-occasion salad that pairs grapefruit segments with creamy avocado, pungent red onion, crunchy pomegranate seeds and aromatic, herby basil. Look for grapefruit with firm, shiny skin that are heavy for their size, which means they will have lots of juice. Store grapefruit for 1 week at room temperature or 1 month in the refrigerator.

This salad is insane. I want it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! I agree with the other reviewer--definitely worth the effort. (FYI - EatingWell's tips on how to de-seed a pomegranate in a bowl of water are very helpful for this recipe!)
This salad is SO good! It has so many different flavors and textures but it blends so nicely together! I did take me a while; however, to peel and section the grapefruits and it was messy. I would definitely say this salad is worth the time and effort.
