It takes only 5 minutes to make this refreshing Grapefruit Corn and Mint salad!
I feel bad for grapefruit. It always had a bad reputation in my household. When I was younger, my mom tried to get me to eat it by sprinkling sugar on top. I still wouldn’t eat it.
A few years ago when my older sister wanted to drop a few pounds, she went on the grapefruit diet. Yes it is as bad as it sounds, pretty much grapefruit for every meal. I refused to touch one all the way up until like 2 months ago, due to the fact that I was traumatized when I was a kid.
Now I can saw that me and grapefruit have reconciled our friendship. Now I love the stuff just like my imaginary boyfriend (because I’m lacking a real one). Just call me the Miley Cyrus of the grapefruit world because I can’t stop won’t stop.
Not only have I found out that grapefruit is good by itself, but its also great with other refreshing flavors. Combine it with summer corn, juicy tomatoes, ripe avo, fresh mint leaves, a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper and you got yourself the most refreshing summer salad in the history of mankind.
