    Slice off a piece from both grapefruit ends, then place it flat on one of the ends and slice off the peel (from top to bottom), exposing the flesh. Working over a bowl to catch the juices, cut out the segments of flesh from between the membranes, then cut them into ½-inch pieces. Transfer the pieces (and any leftover juice) to a medium bowl.

    Halve the avocados lengthwise and twist the halves to separate, then remove the pit with a knife or spoon; scoop out and medium dice the flesh into ½-inch cubes. Add to the bowl.

    Quarter the jalapeño peppers lengthwise; remove and discard the stem, seeds, and membranes. Finely dice the peppers and add to the salsa bowl.

    Using a knife, shave the cilantro leaves off the stems at a downward angle, working away from your body; discard the stems and finely chop the leaves. Add to the salsa bowl.
