Refreshing Summer Greens with Fruit and Mint

written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.

It’s officially summer and time for a new twist on healthy salads. No recipe needed. Mint is plentiful and returns year after year. If you grew it last year, it’s waiting for you right now!  Or find a bunch or small plant at a farmer's market or supermarket.  I find that the fruits that pair best with mint are peaches, grapes and watermelon.

Tonight I had a few ripe white peaches (thank you Hungry Harvest) and some grapes to add to greens with a tomato and some carrots. So refreshing. I prefer it without dressing, but lime or a fruity vinegar would be wonderful as well.

Today’s salad included:
Mixed greens
Tomato
Carrots
White peaches
Red grapes, halved
10 mint leaves, chopped

Toss and eat! Experiment with other fruits and herbs and keep it refreshing!
