Minted Citrus Salad
This refreshing fruit salad is quick and easy to make. We’ve used colorful oranges as well as a white grapefruit—also called a yellow—and a red grapefruit for both how pretty it looks and also how wonderful the flavor variation tastes. Red grapefruit is noticeably sweeter than the white varieties with a touch of bitterness. You can also use a pink grapefruit, which is in the middle of the two in both color and sweetness. If your fruit is sweet you can omit the honey, if desired. One preparation tip is to start by cutting off the top and bottom of the fruits, which will make it easier to remove the peel by slicing from top to bottom around the outside of the fruit.
1 medium, white
1 medium, pink or red
1 tsp, fresh, plus some sprigs for garnish
- Use a serrated knife to remove the peel and pith from the fruit. Hold the fruit over a bowl (to catch any juice) and cut it into segments (remove all membranes).
- Add the fruit segments to a bowl, stir in the mint, cover, and chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.
