Citrus Mint Fruit Salad

I have to say at the moment, my favorite flavours are lime, cilantro, black pepper & garlic. Mixing these together to create really any meal always puts a HUGE smile on my face. Be prepared to see some upcoming posts with those delicious flavours in the mix…

In saying that, I’m sure if I continue to make meals exclusively with these flavours, my family will think we’re eating the same meal every night. So it’s time to mix it up a little!

Citrus Fruit Salad

Spring (even though there in fact is still snow on the ground) is a GREAT time to start injecting vibrant tropical flavours into every day meals. I tend to try to stay away from buying things I can easily make at home, and so today I share with you… Citrus Mint Fruit Salad. An easy side to pancakes or waffles in the morning, perfect for a snack during the day, I even put it on my daughters’ school lunches. This quick meal will help get you through the week – plus the longer it sits, the longer the flavours come together… that is, of course, if it lasts long enough in the fridge.

If you don’t have one – I strongly recommend you get a zester. I have used a fine cheese grater for years, and always end up frustrated, and not with enough zest that I would like. This one tiny kitchen utensil will save time, frustration, and at times – your knuckles.

Notes

Freeze It: This isn’t a super friendly freezer friendly recipe, but you can easily portion fruit out into bags for smoothies later in the week!

And there you have it! It’s simple, but easy to make on a Sunday for brunch with the family, and then use throughout the week for lunches or even in a smoothie when you’re on the go.

Since this is my first post, I thought I would give you a double-header! The fruit salad is excellent alone, over yogurt, or even on top of pancakes… but you can even kick it up a notch!

I just want to thank you for taking the time out of your day to read and share with me.
