I came across a recipe for Strawberry-Citrus Salad when I was looking at recipes for Easter dinner. I happened to have fresh mint, and strawberries, and tangerines. It’s also been unseasonably warm here. The summer-like weather, and the heat in my office since the building hasn’t switched over to air conditioning, has made me want cool things to eat. This sounded incredibly refreshing.
I used dark brown sugar instead of light in this, and tangerines for the citrus. As I expected, this was very refreshing. I liked the mint in it, which I didn’t expect to do since I generally don’t like mint flavor. Fresh mint, however, isn’t ‘minty’ – it rather gives a fresh, herbal flavor to this dish. I don’t think this needs all of the brown sugar, so whenever I make it again, I’ll use less. I really enjoyed this, and I’ll make it again.
