Ruby Red Grapefruit and Avocado Chicken Salad

     Every year for as long as I can remember, the Tibbitts have given my mother Grapefruit for Christmas.  And every year I would sneak part of her Ruby Red Pitman stash over to my house because the juicy sweet citrus called my name!!!  Sadly, the Tibbitts have both passed, but their beautiful daughter LeeAnn has carried on the tradition to the next generation, and now I receive my own supply from her every year for Christmas.  My mouth waters just waiting to experience that first bite of flavor explosion dripping from that fruit.  It would be a crime if I didn't take this opportunity to feed my family one of my favorite Grapefruit salads at the peak of Citrus Season.  You must put this on your to-do list, and you will feel the magic of Christmas too  ;)
