SUMMER CITRUS SALAD perfect for fruit lovers

IMG_4673Whenever 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.
