Whenever the weather starts to warm up and summer feels like it’s in the air, everything I eat seems to revolve around fruit. I want fresh berries in my morning oatmeal, farmer’s market strawberries in my lunchtime salad, and fatty grapefruit in my evening cocktail. It’s like I forget about the other food groups entirely and eat only citrus-based goodies for the next few months. This summer I see no plans to stop, but I am going to introduce a few new recipes to the mix.
I saw this salad while cruising around a few weekends ago & it’s been stuck with me. Delicious juicy fruit, a few sprigs of mint, some lime, and a healthy dose of honey – sounds like a dream! We are calling it our Summer Citrus Salad, although no doubt we will have more over the next coming months, this one will hold down the fort for the time being.
- 4 oranges, segmented
- 2 grapefruit, segmented
- 3 clemintine, segmented
- 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon fresh mint, minced
- Grab a cutting board & a bowl, and segment your fruit placing the skin in the bowl.
- Place your segmented fruit into a large bowl (non-metal preferably), squeezing a bit of lime over each bowl, add honey and mint. Gently stir to combine.
- Serve immediately or store in fridge until ready to serve.
