Are you a grapefruit fan? What about Sweet Scartletts? My husband absolutely LOVES grapefruit. He’s the type that loves to eat it in the morning for breakfast topped with a little bit of cinnamon. Did you know that just half a grapefruit gives you 100% of the daily recommended vitamin C? That’s it…just half!
These beautiful Sweet Scartletts are grown in South Texas, then packaged and put on store shelves near you. We love buying the 5 lb bag which typically last us a week or so. Not only do we love eating them as is but also adding them to smoothies or even fresh squeezed grapefruit juice.
This past week though I decided to branch out and try this Grapefruit Salsa Chicken, we grilled up delicious chicken then topped it with a mixture of seared grapefruit with sweet onion. It’s a strong taste but delicious too. It can be mixed with your favorite flavors too. I added a bit of parsley to ours but I’ve also seen it done with lemon and cilantro too. It gives the chicken a bit of zing. I decided to simply season the chicken with just a dash of salt and pepper, then topping it with the Grapefruit Salsa was the icing on the cake! It was all natural sweetness that made dinner scrumptious!
Along with enjoying this delicious dish, it has been so nice here in Oklahoma that we were able to fire up the grill and get outside to grill the chicken too. It has been nearing 80 degrees or more! I’m not sure where winter is, but it hasn’t showed up here yet! This may be the first year in ages we haven’t seen much snow.
Are you ready for a treat? Then, it’s time to fire up the grill and enjoy this Grapefruit Salsa Chicken! Head on over to Sweet Scartletts to find a store near you.
