How To Make Strawberry and Orange Salad with Citrus Syrup and Fresh Mint
Fresh slices of fruit are the star of this five-ingredient strawberry and orange salad. This refreshing dish is flavored with lemon syrup and fresh mint.
Place the strawberries into a serving bowl.
Cut a slice off the top and bottom of each orange so they sit flat on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, work around the fruits to remove all the skin and pith.
Cupping the orange in one hand and working over the serving bowl, carefully cut the segments out from between the membranes.
Over a separate small bowl, firmly squeeze the remaining membranes to release all the orange juice.
Add the lemon juice and brown sugar to the freshly squeezed orange juice and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Pour over the strawberries and orange segments and gently toss to combine.
Sprinkle with fresh mint. Taste and add more lemon juice if necessary (the syrup should have a perfect balance of tart and sweet).
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to six hours. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and serve in shallow bowls with spoons.
