Strawberry Grapefruit Salad

"Salad" might be a bit generous, as this is really just chunks of grapefruit and slivers of strawberry, dressed in grapefruit juice (blueberries or blackberries can be used as a garnish, if you want to add a third ingredient). Although simple, the combination is quite refreshing, and makes for a nice weekend treat.

Ingredients For One Serving
1 small pink grapefruit, washed and cut into halves, or 1/2 large pink grapefruit
4 strawberries, washed, trimmed, and cut into small bits
3 blackberries or blueberries (optional)

Scoop the individual sections of the grapefruit into a small bowl (this is easiest with a serrated spoon or knife).
Hold the scooped-out grapefruit over the bowl and squeeze, to get the remaining juice.
Add the strawberries and (optional) blackberries or blueberries.
Enjoy.

Now I'm really ready for Spring! The colors in this are so vibrant. I could see some mint and/or julienned jicama going great in this, adding bulk to make it a real "salad." Great idea :)
