    Not sure I would ever consider trying that Springtime Avocado Salad. But if one has never tried grapefruit and avocado, that’s yummy. I’ve always used canned or jarred grapefruit and of course fresh avocado. So, who knows, maybe that salad is not as bad as it sounds.

    Pity the bride who couldn’t, or wouldn’t, eat pineapple.
