Mealthy tip:

To prepare the grapefruit for this salad, Start by trimming the top and bottom of the fruit. Then slice lengthwise between flesh and peel, following fruit's contour to remove both the peel and pith. Next, slice lengthwise between one segment and the membrane until you reach the center of the fruit. Make another slice on the other side of the segment. Gently use the knife blade to remove segment. Repeat until all the segments are removed.

I was able to snag some sumac from a specialty store just so I could make this delicious lemon dressing. It's so delicious! I love grapefruit, and it's season right now, so they're extra fresh. Perfect for dinner parties!
