Welcome to Bumblemom. As my name suggestions, I’m bumbling along as best I can as I navigate a new culture, kids, and style.

Avocado and Grapefruit Salad

It is that time of year in Texas when delicious grapefruit are everywhere.  We were gifted with a monstrous pile of locally grown ruby reds, and there are only so many days I can have a grapefruit half as part of my breakfast.  Fortunately, my local Whole Foods inspired me to take advantage of a killer organic avocado deal (5 for $5!) and make a simple, refreshing salad.

Avocado and Grapefruit Salad

  • 1 ripe avocado

  • 1/2 -1 whole fresh ruby red grapefruit depending on size

  • 1 Tbs olive oil

  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

  • Black pepper


  • Wash cut the avocado into strips (Confounded by avocado? Watch this video!)

  • Cut the strips into small, bite-sized chunks

  • Wash and cut the grapefruit (I like this method for salads.)

  • In a small bowl, mix olive oil, dijon mustard, and pepper to create a light vinaigrette

  • Mix all ingredients together in a larger bowl

The smaller chunks of avocado and grapefruit make this a great finger good.  It can be messy, so have wipes close by!
