According to recent research, regularly eating watercress significantly decreases DNA damage to cells. Pair that with the abundant antioxidants in grapefruit and avocado, and you have a refreshing and healthy late-winter salad. Prep tips: Dill may be substituted for tarragon. Top the salad with lightly toasted walnuts for added protein and healthy fats.
- Whisk together yogurt, mayonnaise, salt, onion, tarragon, and lemon juice. Stir in a few shakes of black pepper. Refrigerate dressing for 30 minutes to meld flavors.
- Cut off a thin slice from both ends of the grapefruit. Place on a cutting board, then carefully cut off rind. Using a paring knife, slice between membranes to release grapefruit segments.
- Toss watercress with about two-thirds of the dressing. Arrange avocado slices and grapefruit segments on top of watercress. Drizzle with a little more dressing and serve.
