Citrus & Mint Salad

The weekend is here, hooray! Less than a month away and I will be enjoying the warm & sunny weather in Costa Rica.  I am so excited about this trip and I’m trying to eat healthier in the meantime.  I’ve had this salad bookmarked for the longest time and so glad that I finally had the chance to make it! 

The original recipe calls for the citrus fruits to be supremed.  This is a process I am not too fond of (very time consuming!), so I peeled and sliced them into ¼’’ slices.  You can also cut the citrus fruits into chunks if you wish, but I preferred the presentation of them being cut into slices.  Also, I’m not too crazy over mint, but found that it added a nice refreshing touch to the salad.  Definitely a salad packed with loads of Vitamin C!  I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend-I am heading to PG to visit MarlinaJ So excited to see her!
