Red grapefruit right now

grapefruit.jpgAnother favorite fall food coming into its peak: red grapefruit. It's sweet, easy to eat, incredibly versatile ... what's not to love? I like it straight up, without sugar; but I also love it in salad with avocado and poppy seed dressing, squeezed into holiday punch, and especially in this utterly fantastic recipe for Smoked Trout and Grapefruit Salad (the vanilla-bean dressing is killer). A couple of nights ago, the Black Cat restaurant in Boulder served us an appetizer that featured red grapefruit, butter lettuce, and lobster drizzled with a buttery red-grapefruit sauce -- it was awesome. There are also new recipes on our website for Grapefruit, Avocado, and Arugula Salad, as well as Broiled Grapefruit with Coriander. And for more ways to use this heart-healthy, affordable fruit, check out the recipes at the Texas Sweet website; I like the look of this dish for Warm Texas Citrus with Brown Sugar. warm-citrus-bake.jpg
