  • 2 avocados, cut into small cubes
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

In a large bowl, combine grapefruit and reserved juice, avocados, green onions and mint. Add lime juice, olive oil, Tabasco, salt and pepper.
