Citrus fruit salad with honey mint lime syrup

For the Salad:

2 navel oranges

1 white grapefruit

2 pink or red grapefruits

For the syrup:

¼ cup honey

¼ cup fresh lime juice

2 tablespoons chopped mint

Cut and peel the fruit, removing the white pith. Cut between membranes to release citrus segments and add all fruit to a large bowl. (Can prepare this a day ahead of time and refrigerate).


In a medium bowl, whisk honey, lime juice and mint together. Pour honey mint syrup over prepared fruit and toss gently until all fruit is combined and coated. Let citrus salad stand for about 15 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Garnish with mint before serving.
