This guacamole is both sweet and tart. The grapefruit gives it an unexpected tang, while providing a burst of sweet citrus bite. I hope y’all venture out of your guacamole safety zone and try this Pink Grapefruit Guacamole. You won’t regret it.


Serving Size: 8

3 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded and peeled
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 medium sweet pink grapefruit, halved
1/2 medium jalapeño, seeded and diced
1 small yellow onion, peeled and diced
1/2 tsp. cumin (comino)
1 Tbsp. chopped cilantro leaves

Remember to check the label when you shop. 
In season Spring - Fall. Learn where to find them


  1. Place the avocado in a bowl and sprinkle with kosher salt.
  2. Squeeze the juice from one grapefruit half over the avocado.
  3. Mash the avocado and grapefruit juice, until chunky-smooth (or to your textural preference). Set aside.
  4. Remove the meat from both halves of the grapefruit in whichever way is easiest for you. I prefer to cut them into quarters and cut the meat out of each quarter and then chop it.
  5. Cut the grapefruit meat with a small knife and add it to the avocado mixture
  6. Add the jalapeño and onion to the avocado mixture.
  7. Top with cumin and cilantro and mix.
  8. Serve.

Note: Make sure the grapefruit is sweet, and this guacamole will wow your friends and family with its unexpected flavor.

Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
