Grapefruit Salad

My friends and I are obsessed with finding healthy and delicious lunches to bring to school; however, this task is seemingly impossible. While pre made salads are delicious, they are horrifically expensive. Homemade salads are delicious and gentler on your wallet. The trick to making sure it lasts is putting the dressing in a separate container, so the lettuce doesn’t get limp.  The grapefruit in the salad smooths skin, boosts your metabolism, and is good for your heart.
