Ingredients:

• ½ Cup thinly sliced red onion

Cut lengthwise into ¼ in thick slices then halve the slices. Gently toss/fold the avocado and pomegranate seeds into the grapefruit mixture. Finely slice the basil leaves into the bowl and add the onion slices, then gently toss/fold again. Arrange lettuce leaves on four salad plates and top with the grapefruit mixture and serve.
