Avocado Grapefruit Tostadas

I made a lot of tostadas (bean and cheese) as a newlywed.  Not super creative, but at the time neither was I. They were easy to pull together, perfect for our tight budget and one of the few things I could cook at the time.

Now being married 13 years I am happy to see things in our kitchen have gotten tastier.  These tostadas are bright, colorful and super tasty, as my 8yr old would say.

A layer of avocado sets the base for sweet segments of grapefruit, sliced red onion and queso.  A quick sprinkle of cilantro and dinner is ready.

The plump segments give this tostada a hearty bite and avocado makes any dish shine.
