• Summer Salads: Orange Mint

    I’ve really been enjoying salads lately.  I usually try a few different kinds every week and about half of them become part of our regular rotation.  I thought I’d start sharing my favorites as kind of a weekly feature. This first one is a really fresh and delicious orange, grapefruit, mint and feta salad. You can switch out a lot of different kinds of fruits, depending on what’s in season. Watermelon is really delicious in it as well. Do you have a favorite summer salad you love? I’d love to hear your suggestions


    Orange Mint Salad
    Sliced oranges, watermelon or other seasonal fruit
    Handful of feta cheese
    Drizzle of olive oil
    Tablespoon of fresh chopped mint

      Oh, I just love watermelon with feta, mint and good balsamic vinegar! I will have to try your combination with citrus fruit.

      My husband's uncle made a grapefruit and avocado salad for us once that was KILLER! It had a warm olive oil & shallot dressing on it. Now I want some.

      I've never really been a salad person (as much as I really wish I was), but this actually looks REALLY good. Maybe because there are more fruits instead of veggies ;)- Sarahhttp://agirlintransit.blogspot.com/
