Kripalu Recipe: Avocado, Grapefruit, and Pumpkin Seed Salad

This nutrient-dense salad is a unique way to make a meal with fruit as the centerpiece. The combination of avocado and pumpkin seeds (also known as pepitas) give this dish substance and crunch. Grapefruit and lime juice add sparkle and balance the flavors. Perfect for a warm summer evening or a special lunch.

Serves 2 to 4

2 grapefruits, peeled and sliced into wedges
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
1 avocado, halved, peeled, and cut into wedges
