With a slice of whole grain toast, this is a dieter's dream breakfast, or it could be the first course on a brunch menu. Add a couple of fresh mint leaves for taste and color contrast.
1/2 cup chopped hulled strawberries
1/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt
- Combine chopped strawberries and yogurt in a small bowl; mix well.
- Halve the grapefruits across the center; separate each section of grapefruit flesh from the membranes with a grapefruit knife or paring knife. Run the knife between the rind and the outer edge of the fruit, loosening the sections.
- Spoon the strawberry-yogurt mixture over each grapefruit half. Garnish with whole strawberries.
Makes 4 servings.
Tip: Before spooning yogurt-strawberry mixture over grapefruit halves, run the grapefruit beneath a moderately-hot broiler for 3 to 4 minutes to heat and lightly brown. Then finish as above.
