Refreshing Citrus and Strawberry Salad


 

Looks like my strawberry fever isn't over yet.

Since strawberries are very photogenic, and we needed a hero recipe for our food photo session in the AFS Studio this morning, I prepared citrus and strawberry salad. I got this recipe from epicurious.com. The simplicity of preparation is what attracted me to make it, plus of course, strawberries being super photogenic.

Ingredients:

- fresh strawberries, sliced

- fresh oranges, peeled and sliced cross-wise

- thinly sliced pepper mint leaves for added flavor

- 2 Tbsp. brown sugar

- 1/8 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (or more, depends how much dressing you want to pour in)

 

1. Mix the freshly squeezed orange juice and brown sugar in a small bowl. Dissolve the sugar.

2. In a separate bowl, toss the strawberries, oranges and thinly sliced mint leaves.

3. Using a spoon, sprinkle the orange juice and sugar mixture to evenly coat the fruits. I like using spoon versus pouring it entirely because I don't really like salad swimming on dressing. Using a spoon helps me control the amount of dressing to put in it.

4. Leave it for a few minutes to let the flavor blend together before serving.
