Feed Your Hair!

Want to show your hair some love? Make up a batch of this sumptuous salad, and your tresses will sing your praises!

All three main ingredients—the avocado, grapefruit and tomatoes—are rich in the vitamins and minerals that promote hair growth and strength. This salad is great throughout the spring and summer when all the ingredients are plentiful and at their peak.

Avocado, Grapefruit & Tomato Salad

2 medium avocadoes, halved, pitted, peeled, and cut into lengthwise strips
2 medium ruby grapefruits
2 medium yellow tomatoes, cored and cut into wedges
2 tbsp fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice
1 1/2 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp fresh mint, julienned
6 green or butter lettuce leaves

Assembling the salad:
1. Place a bed of lettuce leaves on a platter. Gently arrange grapefruit, tomato, and avocado segments on the lettuce, artfully mixing the brightly colored fruits.
2. To prepare the vinaigrette, add the oil, vinegar, and honey to grapefruit juice in the jar, secure the lid, and shake vigorously for dressing to emulsify.
3. Drizzle dressing over salad, sprinkle with mint and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Serves six.
