Zesty Give Me More!

A simple and easy creation from Tania, a raw food lover from London. This nutritious and delicious treat – a pink grapefruit salad – is something you can easily fit into everyday life.

Tania says: “You can eat this alone or with crackers, or stuff the mixture inside lettuce or cabbage leaves. I love pink grapefruit and it is a kind of novelty for me. The first time I tried it a few years ago it didn’t ring my bell, but slowly I started to welcome it in my kitchen. As I was preparing this salad I had the idea to add the grapefruit and I’m so pleased with the result…it tastes sooo good!! Try!”
