Slice up the cucumber and then cut the slices into quarters.

To get the juice from the grapefruit, roll it around with a slight pressure from your hand. This will allow it to release it's juices.

Cut the grapefruit in half and squeeze each half over a measuring cup, until you have 1/3 cup of juice.

Cut the halves into 4 sections each.

Using a sharp small knife, cut the flesh from the rind.

Cut the center pith away from each section.

Cut the grapefruit sections into bite sized pieces.

Combine the grapefruit pieces with the black beans in a medium sized bowl.

Add the onions and cucumbers.

In a small bowl mix together the 1/3 cup grapefruit juice and honey with the rest of the dressing ingredients.

Pour the dressing over the black beans and grapefruit salad.

Garnish with small cubes of mozzarella cheese.
