2 cups grapefruit sections (about 2 large grapefruit)
1/2 small red onion, sliced and separated into rings

Place 1/2 cup romaine and 1/2 cup radicchio on each of 4 salad plates. Divide grapefruit, onion, and avocado evenly among plates; top with pomegranate seeds. If desired, cover and chill salad mixture in an airtight container for up to 1 day ahead of serving.
