Ingredients

  • Syrup:
  • ¼ cup - honey
  • ¼ cup - fresh lime juice
  •  2 tablespoons - mint, chopped
  • Salad:
  • 2 - navel oranges
  • 1 - white grapefruit
  • 2 - pink or red grapefruits

Directions

Cut and peel, removing white pith of oranges and grapefruits. Cut between membranes to release citrus segments and add all fruit to a large bowl. (Can prepare this a day ahead of time and refrigerate.). In a medium bowl, whisk honey, lime juice and mint together. Pour honey mint syrup over prepared fruit and toss gently until all fruit is combined and coated. Let citrus salad stand for about 15 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Garnish with mint before serving.
