I love a good grapefruit. My grandmother taught me that the “only” way to eat a good grapefruit is to stand over the sink with a knife and a peeled grapefruit and cut the flesh from the pitch or membrane. It’s a little messy if you have a juicy grapefruit (hence, eating it over the sink), but I still eat them that way to this day. To me, nothing beats a fresh, sweet, juicy grapefruit eaten over the sink!
But seeing as how I’ve eaten them that way my entire life, I thought it might be high time to branch out a little. I have never gotten very adventurous with grapefruit because I was raised to only eat them that one way! So I thought I’d try a few different recipes using this fabulous fruit, and one of my favorite creations was this grapefruit vinaigrette!
My next recipe will be for a kale salad that is simply brilliant with this dressing. So stay tuned!
