These Grapefruit Recipes Will Brighten Your Darkest Days (PHOTOS)

Citrus season is one of the only reasons we're okay with winter.

Citrus season is one of the only reasons we're okay with winter. From clementines to Meyer lemons, the plethora of citrus fruit dulls the yearning in our heart for summer berries. And that's especially thanks to the biggest, baddest citrus fruit of all: the grapefruit. Grapefruit can make us feel like we're basking in the sunshine even on the snowiest of days. And we're real grateful for it.

You'll find supermarkets are abounding with boxes of grapefruits. We recommend you stock up. Because grapefruits are not just for breakfast. With their unique combination of sweet and tart flavors, they easily work for sweet to savory dishes to be enjoyed as salads, desserts and drinks.
