Grapefruit Chutney

3:38 AMM Khan

I would always just cut a grapefruit into halves, sprinkle sugar and that would be it. Then I met my husband, and he took his grapefruit game to a whole new level. Something as delicate as separating individual pulps, and adding finely chopped cilantro, its not something you expect from him. He's more of the sloppy joes and pizza everyday, kinda guy.


Chutney sounds fancy and so ethnic, but it really is just a red grapefruit with some added spices. I guess you can call it a salad?! I like to add some flare to my breakfast, but you can easily have it for lunch.
