Avocado + Grapefruit Ceviche


I miss MySpace.


Are any of my readers hackers? I need to log in to my old account. I’ll only need your services this one time and your secret will be safe with me.


The photos on this long-ago deactivated MySpace page are so incredibly embarrassing, I’d give a limb to show them to my husband and show him how well I’ve aged. Think colorful braces and flat-iron damaged hair.


Really I just miss a social media platform that let me customize my page with a song. Do you remember the PRESSURE of choosing your MySpace song?! If you were anything like me (sad, not many friends), this was a do-or-die situation. It had to be just right! Both representative of my mood and by a band my crush liked. To achieve, I’d stalk my crush’s fave band page and find the most depressing song they had. Then, I would wait patiently and hope crush noticed and would say something like, “wow, Rach, what an obscure and deep song you have on your page by a band I thoroughly enjoy, would you like to go to the local Sonic and share a limeade?”


I think this had a 0% success rate, but I did develop a deep appreciation for My Chemical Romance.



Time: 20 minutes | Serves: 4-6


  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1 grapefruit, skin removed + diced
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup of cauliflower, cut into very small florets or riced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • S+P, to taste
  • Chips for serving


How to:

  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl + sprinkle on plenty of S + a little P
  • Serve with tortilla chips
  • Try to beat my record of eating literally all of this in a three-hour span


Idea from here!

    I wouldn’t touch the salad (or whatever that is), but I liked the story. My Chemical Romance indeed. Check out Eagles of Death Metal. A little dated but still relevant I think.

    Beautiful salad, everything is in tune. I have escaped Myspace, bebo and what have you, then was kinda forced to open a Facebook account for work and then… Snap. A strange world we live in really… Great post as always! 😉

    Brilliant! How very concisely you have summarized my teenage years. If I wasn’t agonizing over a my space song I was painstakingly analyzing every choice I made during the day, hoping to get the attention of a crush. It is so very liberating to decide you simply don’t care.

    Thanks for the recipe!

      You are speaking my language, I tell ya! Though not about a crush, I still painstakingly analyze every choice I make… One day I won’t care what people think, I swear it!
