Grapefruit salad. HURRAH! I love grapefruit.
Not only my favourite fruit, you see, but probably on my Top Ten list of all things I love to eat (and, if pressed, to drink.) See, usually I'm not really a fruit person. I love berries – their tricky balance of acid and sweet is dreamy – but most tropical fruits are just too sweet. But grapefruit is bitter, my friend, and bitter is good. All good things in life are bitter – coffee, dark chocolate, rocket salad... I'm just saying, that's all. But the combination of rocket salad and grapefruit is very, very bitter, so to make the salad edible, I added a honey, herb and clementine juice sauce. 'Twas very, very good.
