Last month at work, we held our annual November luncheon for the tenants. This meal is essentially a Thanksgiving meal with Turkey and most of the trimmings, as well as various potluck dishes provided by the tenants. One of my tenants brought the most beautiful arrangement of sliced fruits. Visually the platter was stunning, but unfortunately with so many choices on the table, little of the fruit was eaten.
Due to our conversation difficulties (she speaking Russian while I do not, and my speaking English while she does very little) I was not able to let her know to take her dish home when she left the luncheon. Not wanting to waste the food, I covered it well and stored it in the refrigerator we use to hold sodas. As things happen the next day my own lunch was a bit small and I remembered the fruit plate in the refrigerator. I decided to help myself to the sliced kiwis, and when I was dishing up, I noticed that under the kiwi slices were slices of grapefruit.
I love a good grapefruit, but I have also never had it with, anything. My first thought was, dang! But you must remember I was actually hungry. I rarely and I do mean rarely go out for lunch. And that day was no exception, besides I had eaten what I had brought and was just needing a bite or two more, not a whole meal. So I decided to suck it up and just eat the kiwi slices.......
And they were delicious!
They had softened in the acid of the grapefruit and taken in just enough of the grapefruit flavor that they were more delicious than anything I could imagine. Sometimes the simplest pleasures are the best. Let me introduce to you, this kiwi and grapefruit combo. While it is not a gorgeous dish in looks, it is in flavor. And that my friends, is the best food to share!
|Kiwi and Grapefruit Winter Fruit Bowl|
Kiwi and Grapefruit Winter Fruit Bowl
4 ripe kiwi
1 ruby grapefruit
Peel and slice the kiwi, placing in a shallow bowl.
Cut grapefruit in half, spoon out the sections. You don't have to be careful, you will need to break the grapefruit into smallish pieces.
Scatter the grapefruit pieces over the kiwi slices. Squeeze any juices left in grapefruit rinds over the fruit.
Cover and chill until serving, at least 2 hours.
