Grapefruit With Ginger Syrup and Ice Cream

This dessert is just a delicious as it’s delightfully simple. Because there are only 5 ingredients and 2 steps (read: the it’s super simple), every ingredient counts. So opt for a ruby red grapefruit, which will look gorgeously saturated against the vanilla ice cream. To remove the grapefruit peel neatly, first cut a slice off the top and bottom of the grapefruit using a sharp chef’s knife or serrated knife. Stand it upright on one of the cut ends. Working from top to bottom and following the curve of the grapefruit, remove strips of the peel, including the white pith, to reveal the red flesh.
