Grapefruit and Black Bean Salad

Grapefruit and Black Bean SaladIf you're making this salad ahead, brush a little grapefruit juice on the avocado slices to prevent darkening.

1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 medium cucumber, halved lengthwise and sliced
1 cup cubed canned papaya, drained

1/2 cup 100% Florida Grapefruit Juice
3 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Cooking Directions:

  1. Line 4 salad plates with lettuce. Arrange grapefruit slices on plates. Arrange beans, cucumber, and papaya in mounds on lettuce. Sprinkle with cheese.
  2. For dressing, in a screw-top jar combine grapefruit juice, cilantro, honey and cumin. Cover and shake well. Drizzle some of the dressing over the salads.
