My good friends Maury and Willa brought their two friends from LA over to my house yesterday for brunch We collectively decided that each of us would prepare something for the meal. Tim and Jim made banana bread French toast (AMAZING!), I prepared muffin tin eggs (DELICIOUS!) and Maury prepared a fruit salad that he dressed with basil, mint and meyer lemon juice. The mint and basil gave the salad such an interesting flavor and the meyer lemon, which is a cross between a true lemon and a mandarin orange, gave the fruit salad just the right amount of zing!
- 2 mangoes - chopped
- 1 pint of blueberries
- 1 pint of strawberries, halved
- 3 Clementine oranges
- 6 basil leaves, chopped
- 6 mint leaves, chopped
- juice of 1 meyer lemon
Mix everything in a bowl, let rest for about 20 minutes to let the flavors meld, mix again and serve.
