Total time: 
Serves: 2
A fresh seasonal salad made with juicy, bright citrus, lemon balm (mint), and honey.
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 Meyer lemon
  • small handful of lemon mint leaves (also called lemon balm)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey (use less if the fruit is extra sweet)
  • a little drizzle of olive oil
  1. Cut the ends off the fruit and use the knife to cut away the peel all the way around. Slice crosswise into thin rounds. Transfer the slices, plus any accumulated juices, into a shallow bowl. Drizzle with the honey and olive oil, and sprinkle with the lemon mint leaves. Let stand for a few minutes for flavors to meld. Divide between two plates and serve.
Note: For a more substantial salad, you can add goat cheese to this and serve it on a bed of baby greens or arugula.
