Many of us know that limes and avocados are a great combo, but I really love any citrus fruits with avocado! In this Triple Citrus Guacamole, I brought together three citrus fruits: grapefruit, orange, and lime, and paired them with traditional guacamole ingredients like avocado, red onion, and cilantro. The result is an extra tart and tangy guacamole that celebrates winter citrus season!
For years, I’ve loved a simple salad of grapefruit and avocado, sometimes on top of salad greens, sometimes just tossed together with a little salt and pepper. I got to thinking…why not mash them together into guacamole?! Grapefruit and avocado are great together, and even better on top of tortilla chips (as most things are, really). I added orange to this guacamole for a little natural sweetness to balance out the tartness of the grapefruit and lime.
Triple Citrus Guacamole makes a great appetizer dip for a cozy New Year’s Eve at home, or any of the upcoming football games over the next few weeks. It’s a bright, tart, and unexpected twist on an old standby!
