There you go, your grapefruit shrimp salad is ready to be tasted ;-)

Easy and quick to do, isn't it? In addition, this recipe is unmissable!

If you don't want to make this salad at the last minute, garnish cups or verrines (they will take up less space in your fridge than plates) with your preparation and leave them in the fridge until ready to serve.

But don't prepare this salad 48 hours in advance, just 2 or 3 hours before, so as not to be overwhelmed when your guests arrive. And cover the top of the cups with stretch wrap so that its contents do not dry out.

Depending on the season, you can add cherry tomatoes or avocados in your salad.

Bonus tip

To peel grapefruit raw (that is to say to remove this cottony skin that sticks to the pulp) without difficulty, remove the thick skin from the fruit and place them in the refrigerator for two hours.

The white skin will then dry out and come off easily.
