I think you are right babe. My husband eats salt and pepper on any and all melons. Too much for my taste buds though. lol

Never put salt on gf. Bet it's yum. Have to watch my salt, but a little taste can't hurt Thanks for the inspiration.

I like to have grapefruit on icecream.
Grapefruits can be dried and used as dry-fruits.

Make a grapefruite curd! It's very similar to the lemon curd except a little bitter instead of tart. From there you can use it on tarts with pastry cream, use it as a filling between layers of cake, or even use it as a topping for ice cream.
