Pink Grapefruit & Olive Salad

Simple Grapefruit black olive salad: 

- 1 Pink or ruby grape fruit
- Small handful Black olives or kalamatas

- Drizzle of Good olive oil
-Squeeze of Lemon juice
- Sprinkling of sea Salt

Cut both sides of the grape fruit off using a sharp knife then place one of the cut sides down on the cutting board. Use the knife to cut strips of the peel off the grape fruit working from top to bottom curving the knife around the grapefruit, rotate the grape fruit so that you manage to remove all the peel.  

Now slice the grapefruit horizontally into medium slices. Place them on a plate.

Using the side of your knife squash the olives on the cutting board and remove the pits. Chop the olives into smaller pieces.

Lay the olives on the grapefruit, drizzle with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice.  Just before serving add a sprinkling of sea salt.

Black olives can be bitter, and grapefruit too to some folks but the combination of the two bitters somehow cancels it out and it's quite refreshing.
