Grapefruit Avocado Salsa

To prepare the grapefruit for the salsa, cut it in half crosswise. Then with a knife carefully separate the pulpy flesh from the white membrane.


Then simply lift each section with a spoon and place into a bowl.


This salsa is bursting with both flavor and color. I especially love how the individual flavors combine together: the sweet, pungent taste of cherry tomatoes, the crunchy, juicy sweetness of the yellow bell pepper, the gentle buttery taste of the avocado along with the slight bitterness and the tangy flavor of the grapefruit, all drizzled with a tad of lime juice.


We had the salsa as a snack with chips. It would also go really well with lemon-marinaded chicken breast or white fish fillets, or you can use it as a topping for tacos.
