Grapefruit Guacamole

While it's pretty much impossible to ever get bored of guacamole, I had a little fun, and changed up the usual guac by adding grapefruit instead of lime juice. The grapefruit gives this guacamole a delicious citrusy punch, and it's the perfect conversation starter for your next party or potluck.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 2 cups


  • 1/4 small red onion (minced)
  • 1 grapefruit (each segment peeled)
  • 2 avocados (roughly chopped) make sure they're ripe
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • hot sauce (to taste)


  1. Sprinkle some salt on the onions and use a squeezing motion with your hand to coax out some liquid. Rinse them with cold water, then pass them through a sieve and use a paper towel to remove as much water as possible.
  2. Add the onions to a bowl. Roughly crumble the grapefruit segments removing any remaining membranes into the bowl. It's okay if some juice comes out of the grapefruit.
  3. Add the avocado, cilantro and salt, then stir to mash up the avocado a bit, but leave some chunks. Serve with tortilla chips.
