When it comes to citrus, we definitely don't pay enough attention to grapefruit. The overlooked winter fruit may not be as sweet as oranges or tangerines or clementines, but it has a number of qualities that make it delicious in its own right.
For one, it has a refreshing bitter kick that can brighten up heavy, savory dishes, like spice-rubbed steaks and roasted chicken. That bitterness can also keep desserts from being overly sweet. There are also a bunch of ways to eat it, like chopped up raw and added to a salad, or cooked into a chutney, or broiled and topped with yogurt. Basically, if there's a grapefruit, there's a way.
Not to mention, grapefruit's bright color makes it the perfect antidote to the weather outside (and all its vitamin C certainly doesn't hurt either). Use these 21 recipes to start incorporating it into your life, stat.
