This Shrimp & Grapefruit Cucumber Rolls recipe is part of a sponsored campaign on behalf of Sweet Scarletts and Millennial Blogs. All opinions are my own. 

I seem to always lean towards bite-size appetizers, snacks, and foods. There’s just something about small bites that really grab my attention. They are visually appealing and can easily be enjoyed one bite at a time at parties or meal time.

Shrimp & Grapefruit Cucumber Rolls Appetizer Recipe

Lately, every week I have to buy more and more fruits. My three growing boys go through a ton, but I have also been trying to add more fruit to my daily routine. I try to have at least a serving at breakfast and for a snack, plus I add slices into my glass of water.

Sweet Scarletts Grapefruit

Grapefruits are one of those fruits that are naturally sweet and packed with vitamin C. Just half a grapefruit gives you 100% of the daily value of vitamin C and has about 60 calories. No sugar needed on Sweet Scarletts Texas Red Grapefruits. They are an easy & tasty breakfast or snack option, but are also great to use in recipes.
