Yum! Who wants to put the oven on when it’s 102 degrees outside? Here’s a great salad that you can share with your loved one as an appetizer OR as a dessert.

Serves 2

Citrus Salad with Ginger

  • 2 oranges
  • 2 small grapefruits
  • 1 banana
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons evaporated cane juice

Using a sharp knife, cut away the outer rind and white membrane of both the oranges and grapefruits. Section the citrus by cutting along the longitudinal membranes. Peel and slice the banana into 1/4 inch rounds.

Place the prepared fruit in a bowl. Add the ginger and sweetener. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1/2 hour before serving. Garnish with mint leaves.

Variation: Sweeten with honey.
