Recipe: Grapefruit Salad (With Photos!)

June 5, 2013

I was out last night and in the mood for something exciting and tasty and filling. However, I obviously wasn’t carrying a blender, food processor, or juicer, so all I had was the produce section of a New Seasons (organic grocery store) and the free knife and fork which they loan to people eating in. So I made a fantastic layered fruit salad which I would even be proud to serve to guests at my home. Here is the recipe with pictures.

What You Need:

  • 1/2 large grapefruit (including skin)
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 handful of cherries
  • Directions

    1. Carve the grapefruit’s flesh out of its skin, making what is the bowl for this fruit salad.

    3. The first layer of fruit is half of the banana, sliced to your liking.

    5. The second layer is the cherries. If they aren’t pitted already, pit them over the “bowl” so that the juice adds extra flavor to the banana layer. Once the cherry layer is added, press it down.

    7. The third layer of this salad is the grapefruit’s flesh, which you’ll want to also slice up.

    9. Then top of your grapefruit salad with the other half of your banana, again sliced to your liking. And you’re done!

    Notes:

  • If you substitute the cherries with grapes, this becomes a purely detox fruit salad.
  • For bigger fruit salads, you can substitute the grapefruit and its skin with a melon and it’s shell.
