Just had a salad the other day that had avacado wedges alternated with grapefruit wedges over a bed of arugala and a vinaigrette over. The grapefruit wedges were cut, so a fork would easily break them up, not the natural peeled wedges. Good.
While I like avacado, I agree they seem very expensive for what you get. I have to be in the mood or I just think they cost too much. My wife, on the other hand, loves them at any cost. Guess how often we have them.
