As Promised, More Fun With Citrus

Rebekah's giveaway is over and you did not win. Sorry. It's okay, neither did I. And cheer up, I have another really cool grapefruit recipe for y'all. It is similar to the other, a savory grapefruit dish with a vinaigrette, but it is a little different. I am down to my last two grapefruit, but I plan to try at least one more recipe. If it's another keeper, I'll let you know. In the meantime, this is very yummy.

Avocado and Grapefruit Salad (or Salsa, as the case may be)- this is an Ina Garten recipe. She makes it all wedge-y and slice-y and salad-y, but I chopped it up and made it a salsa and served it with Trader Joe's blue corn tortilla chips. Obviously, you could use any colored chip- blue, white, yellow, red, or what have you. We all really liked it that way.

4 avocados
2 large red grapefruits
1T dijon mustard
1/4c. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
3/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1/2 c. good olive oil
-peel, seed, and slice or dice fruits, be sure to remove all inner membranes from grapefruit, and place in a bowl (or arrange on plates if making salads).
-mix mustard, lemon juice, and olive oil to make dressing. pour dressing over fruit, but not all at once- it seems to make a little more than you need, but this could vary on the size of your fruits. sprinkle with salt and pepper.
