This salad also makes a great dessert
2 small grapefruit
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
2 tablespoons evaporated cane juice. – Using a sharp knife, cut away the outer rind and white membrane of both the oranges and grapefruits. Section the citrus by cutting along the longitudinal membranes. Peel and slice banana into 1/4 inch rounds.
Place the prepared fruit in a bowl. Add the ginger and sweetener.
Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1/2 hour before serving.
Garnish with mint leaves
Variation: Sweeten with honey.

Please also stop by his wonderful restaurant in Great Falls, Virginia. I believe this is the best restaurant in Northern Virginia.
