"This different and refreshing combination of fruits is a welcome side dish my husband, Jim, and I enjoy with breakfast or lunch," says Genise Krause from Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. "The light dressing lets the goodness of the fruit come through."

    I have made this many times. It is so refreshing and delicious. Peeling the grapfruit takes a little time, but the results are worth it. I think you could easily serve 3 instead of just 2.
