This salad is delicious! It will appeal to those who like the old style ambrosia salad and keep the health nuts happy too. The dressing which is buttermilk combines well with the coconut. I could not find arugula and used fresh salad greens which worked too. I will probably use a third avocado as it mixes well with red grapefruit. I will definitely make this one again and serve it at Thanksgiving.
