Place the mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until the vinaigrette is emulsified.

Cut the avocados in half, remove the seeds, and carefully peel off the sin. Dip each avocado half in the vinaigrette to prevent it from turning brown. Peel the grapefruits (be sure to remove all the white pith) then cut between the membranes to release the grapefruit segments.

Arrange the grapefuit segments on 4 small plates. Cut the avocados in wedges and arrange them with the grapefruit. Spoon a little vinaigrette on top, sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.
