My husband and I retired from central Illinois to Florida. Several times, a friend gave us grapefruit from his backyard tree. One day I was going to make a lemon pineapple gelatin salad and discovered I didn't have pineapple. So, I cut up a fresh grapefruit and used it in the salad. It was good, and I tried adding other fruits until I came up with this recipe. —Doris Wendling, Palm Harbor, Florida

"My husband is diabetic so he very much appreciated this recipe as I used sugar-free gelatin and unsweetened pineapple. The only other thing different I did was I used canned grapefruit segments, drained and patted dry."
