I think it’s safe to say that I’m still in that weird limbo (thanks to Michigan weather) between winter and spring. I’m making the best of it by taking advantage of all the great citrus produce available but mixing it with summer flavors so that I can pretend it’s warm and sunny out. Enter mint!

I could eat this citrus salad with mint all summer long. I know, major contradiction. But it is really refreshing, super flavorful, and kind of shouts SUMMER ON THE BEACH despite making use of the citrus produce that sometimes get delegated to winter only.  The lime and mint in this salad really do a great job of making this a refreshing salad fit for the hottest of summer days.

Ben tried it even though quite honestly, the dude prefers a plain ol’ orange. I was pleasantly surprised when he really enjoyed this and his exact words were, “This would be great on a hot summer day. It’s so refreshing.”

See, we’re all ready for summer here in Michigan.

This beautiful citrus salad with mint isn’t only great for hot summer days (and breakfast pretty much any day), but it would also be great for a baby shower! What shower wouldn’t benefit from a bowl of this beautiful salad?

Another thing that is great about it is that since it is so light and refreshing, it’s a happy contradiction to typical party food which can fall on the heavier side.

Today we’re celebrating Christina of Dessert for Two and her baby that will be arriving very soon with this surprise virtual baby shower. She specializes in desserts made for two (like these lemon meringue pie cookies) so I considered making a recipe for two in honor of her, but this is about the party! We need to serve a whole bunch of people because a whole bunch of people want to celebrate Christina. This recipe is easily doubled, tripled, or multiplied by ten to suit your needs.Shallow white bowl containing citrus salad, garnished with mint leaves.

So, Christina, you’re going to have a baby. Hold on tight, things are about to get crazy in the best way you could never even have possibly imagined. There will be blood, sweat and tears, and happiness and love throughout it all. I just know you’re going to be a great mom!
