    I haven’t had grapefruit in ages! It is delicious though, especially this way =D.

    Spinach and Grapefruit Salad

    1 large handful of spinach leaves
    1 avocado cut into bite-sized chunks
    1 grapefruit peeled and cut into chunks
    Balsamic Vinaigrette or Olive Oil

    Use baby spinach or tear spinach leaves into bite-sized pieces and place in salad bowl with avocado and grapefruit. Toss with vinaigrette or olive oil.

    If desired add cauliflower florets.

    I am surprised at how good and refreshing this is. I got this recipe from http://www.hacres.com I did not add the cauliflower and the recipe was with olive oil I preferred vinaigrette.

    So true, I just love grapefruits. We have a tree so we always try to get creative with them. My favorite way to eat them is to drink them. I have this recipe posted on my blog:

    I think it could be sugar free if you omit the orange liqueur.

    This isn’t really a recipe, but avocado and grapefruit are good together in salads.

    Thanks for linking my recipe! You never know, maybe one day I will be able to give you lessons. The world is only a plane ride away these days!

    I’d have to say your recipe is one of the only ways I usually eat grapefruits. I have yet to try it with agave nectar.

    This sounds delicious with the ginger added. I might have to have one last grapefruit hurrah before they go out of season!

    I would never think of broiling grapefruit! I just eat it like an orange…it’s one of my favorite fruits. But I love that idea. And I love the colors in the photo. My old watercolor professor used to have us paint grapefruits because of the delicate and intricate colors in them.

    You seriously read my mind…. I was just going to make this (like, as soon as I finished reading my morning blogs!).

    I actually love broiled grapefruit! Haven’t had it this way in a while – honey on top is really good too!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I tried my grapefruit with ginger on one side and cinnamon on the other. I didn’t like the cinnamon on the grapefruit but it was fantastic with the ginger on it. Thanks for sharing this. Keep up the great work! :)

    @Carol, I like the ginger better, too. :) So glad you like this. Hugs!!

    I’ve actually had broiled grapefruit “back in the day” and it was great. I think I actually had mine with Splenda when I thought that was a safe sweetener. :-( I like the idea of honey or agave. Yours looks spectacular. I’m loving the comments and the other recipes you shared. Iris painting grapefruit in watercolor–wow! Sandy’s recipe sounds fab. (She should include that in Diane’s Friday Foodie Fix for cauliflower tomorrow.) And, Ariana’s punch and Jenna’s cocktail! Similar to Chelsey’s recipe, as I mentioned to you a bit ago, I saw a salmon recipe with grapefruit that I want to try. I would have never thought of using avocado and grapefruit together as you and Beatrice suggested–interesting. So many great ideas! I love how you are always experimenting and sharing with us, Amy!

    I love Grapefruit! I love buying the giant bags of them in the winter. I have never tried broiling them. I will have to try that. I love to peal them like oranges and eating them plain that way. Thanks for the idea.

    I can’t wait to try broiling my grapefruit! I don’t have agave – would raw honey or stevia work?

    I am a grapefruit freak. I eat one every day, but not with any sweetener. I just peal and go. But this sounds divine. I must try it today! Thank you for this posting. I will definitly have to get back to you on it.

    I have been eating broiled grapefruit for over 60 years. It was one of my dads favorites. I have made it for years. All I do is section each grapefruit half, slather with raw honey and for a great treat top it with a cherry and broil. Yummmm!
