Earlier this month, my mother sent us another box of Florida ruby-red grapefruits as a present. It was a very pleasant & thoughtful surprise to receive in the mail. :) Thanks, Mom! We really appreciate it!

So it's no surprise that we've been eating grapefruits like they've been going out of style. :) Sure, I love eating them with a spoon or in wedges, but I thought it might be fun to do something else with them instead of just eating them in their unadorned state. And so, I created this recipe....

Grapefruit Salsa

Ingredients:
1/2 large, ruby-red grapefruit, deseeded, peeled, and separated into wedges
3 medium-sized, vine-ripened tomatoes, diced
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced into cubic 1/2" pieces
1/2 red onion, diced into cubic 1/2" pieces
1/2 tsp. jalepeño pepper, finely minced
1/4 c. cilantro, finely chopped
1 Tbsp. distilled white vinegar
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. dried oregano leaves
salt & pepper, to taste

Directions: Mix all of the ingredients together & refrigerate for 1-3 hours before serving, to allow ingredients to marinate. Serve & enjoy!

Yield: About 3 cups.
