One of the top things about living in Austin, Texas is Texas grown grapefruit. Yes, the barbecue is good. Yes, the slim potential to meet Willie Nelson on the sidewalk is also good. But a grapefruit for breakfast (or anytime) is a reality I can enjoy every day, and Wonderful Sweet Scarletts start my day in the sweetest way. Even when I lived in Florida, where the citrus is supposed to be incredible, I’d still need to drizzle some honey on top of the pink fruit. Texas grown Sweet Scarletts Grapefruit don’t need the extra sweetness, they are naturally rich in flavor and sweetness.
In the few months I’ve been here, I’ve figured out that the city of Austin is an oasis for weirdness and hip-ness. If you go even 30 minutes out of the city and said the words ‘hipster’ (or even ‘kombucha’ or ‘cold brew’) they’d point you back in the direction you came from. When Sweet Scarletts approached me about developing a recipe for their brand, I immediately went to the hippest trend happening in Austin right now: Breakfast Salad. Stay with me for a second, veggies for breakfast might not be too outside the box when sweet grapefruits come into play. Sweet Scarletts Grapefruit is tossed with avocado, arugula, and cucumber and served over slightly protein-rich greek yogurt. Granola on top gives an extra ‘crunch’, similar to the idea of croutons, but think more breakfast route. Read on for the recipe below and be sure to pick up a bag of Sweet Scarletts while they are still in season!
