ISO: Grapefruit Ideas

Love grapefruit. Looking for some inspirational ideas. Have had it au natural, in salads - pink with a cherry on top, broiled (& make a fish dish with grapes -- may try that with grapefruit next time).

Any creative ideas with grapefruit? TIA

  • Make a big ol' fruit salad and squeeze the grapefruit on it
  • top with brown sugar and broil
  • grapefruit sorbet
  • fresh-squeezed grapefruit with a quality vodka! Can I borrow a grapefruit?

grapefruit

Just an aside. If you take any kinds of medications, make sure you can have grapefruit.......seems there are a lot of meds and grapefruit that don't go well together.

I always put a little salt on my grapefruit. A gal at work told me to try it and I loved it. Won't eat it any other way now.

What if you used a syringe and injected 1 oz. of Gin in a grapefruit and gave it to a neighbor...
