Why You Need To Start Salting Your Grapefruit

Salting grapefruit to achieve a more palatable flavor is as easy as sprinkling salt onto the surface of a halved or sliced-up fruit. 

But even simple kitchen hacks require guidelines, so it's important to keep a few tips in mind before combining the two.

For starters, a little bit goes a long way. 

In fact, you don't even have to introduce a perceptible amount of salt that you can consciously taste to effectively mute the bitterness in the grapefruit.

Start with a finger pinch and adjust according to your preferences;

If you've salted the fruit and it's still too pungent for your liking, add a bit more until you strike the perfect balance.

One common answer to curing a too-salty dish, whether it's chicken soup or a ripe grapefruit, is adding acid.
