Whenever I think of a grapefruit, I think of a restrictive diet that involves eating the citrus fruit plain every morning, and I get kind of turned off. The idea of whipping up great grapefruit recipes just doesn't do it for me. Really, this is totally unfair to grapefruit. It's not the grapefruit's fault that it has a reputation as being a boring diet food. It deserves more than this!

For those who haven't realized, grapefruit is actually a really delicious fruit that pairs well with so many other kinds of food, and makes for a refreshing addition to many recipes. And there's no better time to celebrate it than February, which is National Grapefruit Month. Conveniently, grapefruits are also in season right now, meaning that this is the best time to eat them because they'll be super sweet and also super cheap.

So, stop thinking of grapefruit as something boring, and start thinking of it as yummy and exciting — these 15 recipes should help. From dessert to salads to alcoholic drinks, there's something here for everyone.
