When I was growing up I would often see my grandmother eating grapefruit for breakfast. She would slice it in half, sprinkle a little sugar on each side and eat it with a spoon.
So it wasn’t until I was a little older that I realized that grapefruit is not just for breakfast, it’s also delicious in salads, drinks, and baked goods too. Especially Sweet Scarletts grapefruit which are the reddest, sweetest and tastiest grapefruit… No need to add sugar to these sweet grapefruits.
They really do brighten up every dish. Just look at this color!
My kids have only just recently started enjoying salads, but of course being kids they never like the same thing at the same time, so I always put all of the ingredients out with serving spoons and let them dish up what they want. This helps to keep the whining to a minimum and my sanity in check.
Set out these fabulous ingredients for your family to enjoy a delicious and healthy salad.
