The citrusy and minty freshness of this salad is an incredible combo that will wake you up and put a little sunshine in your day! Not to mention it’s so healthy full of Vitamin C, beta carotene – great for skin, fibre and antioxidants and lots more. Sprinkle the pomegranate arils on top of the grapefruit and clementine slices, Top with fresh mint leaves and serve.

Ingredients

  • 1 pink grapefruit
  • 2-3 clementines
  • 1/2 pomegranate, deseeded
  • a few leaves of fresh mint

Instructions

  1. Wash and peel off the skins of the fruit. Cut the grapefruit into chunks and slice the clementines into slices so it looks pretty in a wide bowl.
  2. To deseed the pomegranate, my favourite way is to submerge into a bowl of cool water and cut and pull apart the pieces while the fruit is submerged in the water. I have tried many methods (including the ‘spanking’ method) this is the only way I find keeps the juices away from your clothes and surrounding area – that’s because the water prevents the juice bursts to fly through the water and they stay in the bowl. Then, drain the arils on a calendar and enjoy!
