For my entire adult life I was under the impression that I didn’t like grapefruit. I would hear the word grapefruit and cringe. I think it goes back to my childhood when I would eat them with a huge pile of sugar on top but never really enjoy the taste. The funny thing is that I really like Squirt pop which is grapefruit flavor and I love love love the Origins body wash and lotion which are grapefruit scented. A couple weeks ago when we were in San Francisco I learned that I like grapefruit juice mixed with gin but I still wasn’t to sure about the actual grapefruit itself. When I was at the grocery store last Friday I bought two grapefruits. They sat in a bowl on the counter and I would look at them but never pick them up. Today I finally decided to get crazy and give it a try. I sliced it down the middle and gave it a taste. The taste was pretty good but I thought it could be a little bit sweeter so I added just a dusting of sugar. Holy wow! I totally discovered my new favorite breakfast fruit!
I also have another fruity discovery I want to share with you. I found a recipe named “Endless Summer Salad” and I made it with our dinner tonight.
You will need:
- A large bowl
- 1/4 of a watermellon
- 1/2 of a cucumber
- 1/2 of a red, orange or yellow pepper
- A few leaves of fresh Basil
- 1/2 a cup of goat cheese (the recipe called for feta I’m not a big fan)
- 1/2 a cup of Watermellon Vinaigrette
Toss it all together and you have heaven in a bowl! Seriously this stuff is silly good!!
