This simple recipe can be prepared well under an hour. As we continue to move into citrus season, consider trying it out with oranges, tangerines, or other heavy-skinned fragrant citrus. If substituting, based on average sizing, two oranges or three tangerines may be used in the place of the grapefruit.
