Citrus Mint Salad with Honey Syrup

Citrus Mint Salad with Honey Syrup | popularpaleo.comSometimes you just gotta KISS: Keep It Simple, Stupid.  This salad highlights the beauty of whole foods–all of which are easily found at any local grocery store.

Sour and sweet volley for first place with each bite…  It’s gourmet without pretentiousness.


  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 blood orange
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 TBSP fresh mint, thinly sliced
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • tiny pinch of kosher salt
  • Optional: goat cheese crumbles

Peel and cut the grapefruit and blood orange segments into thirds. Combine with the fresh blueberries and thinly sliced mint.

In a small sauce pan, bring the honey, water, vanilla and salt to a gentle boil.  Whisk constantly and reduce into a thin syrup.

To assemble, serve a portion of the citrus, berries and mint on your plate or bowl.  Then spoon over desired amount of honey syrup. If you are comfortable eating goat cheese, I highly encourage you crumble a little bit on top. Sounds funny, tastes awesome.

Perfect accompaniment to your Paleo-inspired Sunday brunch or as a sweet treat to finish the day.
