Grapefruit de Mayo

Hello friends, readers, strangers.
I do not know if you know this about me, but I hate to waste food. Especially fresh produce someone has grown in their garden or picked from a tree and they want to share with me. Recently, my Mom challenged me with a large amount of grapefruit. See exhibit A

Exhibit A
Oh yeah! I got this.
Grapefruit and Avocado Salsa
(served 2 on top of fish and with tortilla chips)
3 grapefruits
1 avocado
1/4 small red onion, diced finely
handful of cilantro, chopped
juice from 1/2 lime
salt and pepper

Cut grapefruits in half and cut between and around the pith. Remove segments and squeeze juice into a separate bowl. Toss grapefruit with red onion, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, then add avocado, gently combine and serve.

*My grapefruits were extremely juicy. I used the juice of 1/2 of grapefruit for the salsa. And I found two other recipes that will use the remainder of the grapefruit juice.
