I’ve always loved grapefruit. It was one of my favorite childhood snacks — slice one in half and sprinkle some sugar on it and I was good. Even now, I love to eat grapefruit slices for breakfast. This Texas Citrus Salsa is a yummy and unique way to use grapefruit.
I recently had the chance to attend a cooking workshop by the TexaSweet Citrus Council and Central Market, where we learned how to make five dishes using grapefruits. They were *so* yummy!
I even learned how to properly segment a grapefruit. This is now a life skill that I am proud to possess, and one that comes in handy when making this Texas Citrus Salsa.
I made this to serve with some chicken tacos last weekend, and they were *awesome.* This salsa is sweet, with a punch of spice from the jalapeños and some tang from the grapefruit. I’ll share that grapefruit-inspired recipe later this week, too.
For now, grab a bag of chips and enjoy this tasty salsa!
Texas Citrus Salsa
1 Texas Rio Star Grapefruit, peeled, sectioned and chopped
1 large Texas Orange, peeled, sectioned and chopped
1 medium tomato
1 c diced green, red, and yellow bell pepper (use a mixture of all three peppers for best color contrast)
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
3 Tbsp chopped red onion
1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
Mix together the tomato, bell pepper, jalapeño, onion and cilantro. Stir in the sugar and salt, then add in the grapefruit and orange pieces.
Serve with salty chips — bonus points if they’re shaped like Texas!
