Chicken, Avocado, & Grapefruit Salad

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast
1tbsp Pampered Chef Citrus & Basil Rub (Could use any seasoning you like)
1 tsp olive oil

Dressing & Salad
1 large grapefruit
1 tsp. grapefruit zest
1 tbsp orange marmalade
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4-6 radishes
1 avocado
6 oz baby spinach
1/2 C red onion

Combine olive oil and seasoning in bowl and rub on chicken breast.
Grill chicken until done and let cool.
Zest grapefruit, cut in half and remove sections.
Dump juice from rind into bowl, add zest, marmalade, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Set aside.
Slice radishes and onions and dice avocado.
Toss all salad ingredients in bowl with dressing.

This is a very light and wonderful salad. We had it a my Pampered Chef party last night and it was WONDERFUL. In the future when making this I think I will add a little iceburg lettuce to make it go a little further and for a little more crunch. I will also think about adding strawberries, crumbled bacon, and some shredded cheese. (Swiss or Mozzerella would both be real yummy.) If you aren't a huge grapefruit fan you could probably use oranges and it would work just as well it would just be a little sweeter.
