TIP OF THE DAY: Use Red Grapefruit For Festive Accents

Still thinking about what to serve on Valentine’s Day? Much of what you decide to make can be accented with red grapefruit segments.

Red grapefruit is a mutation of a pink grapefruit discovered in the 1920s. (Pink grapefruit itself is a mutation that appeared at the beginning of the 20th century.)

As pink grapefruit is typically sweeter than white grapefruit, red grapefruit is even sweeter. Red grapefruit can be found under the brand names Rio Red, Rio Star, Ruby Red and Ruby Sweet.

The rich red color of red grapefruit is due to lycopene, a powerful carotenoid phytonutrient (antioxidant) that appears to fight tumor growth. Lycopene exists to a lesser extent in pink grapefruit.

Take a look at two entire dinner’s worth of red grapefruit recipes. Some of the 10 recipes:

 

Start with a Grapefruit & Vodka Cooler and a Grapefruit & Apple Mint Sushi Roll With Honey Chili Dipping Sauce. Move to a main dish of Herbed Steamed Shrimp With Spicy Texas Red Grapefruit and a Citrus Asparagus Salad. Finish with red grapefruit-garnished Mini Cheesecakes or Grapefruit Crème Brûlée.

Here’s one more easy recipe; it serves 4.
