WOOHOO Summer is finally here and I freakin L O V E it! I made this super delish Elderflower Citrus Salad yesterday for my colleagues and they loved it so much I of course had to share it with you guys! Like most of my recipes this one is super super easy to make and you’ll be done within 15 minutes!! Yes.. I know.. thank me later ;D So yeah, honey, what the f#ck are you waiting for? Scroll down to check out my recipe for this crazy delish summer citrus salad.
Ingredients for 1 plate as a sidedish :
- 1 Orange
- 1 Grapefruit
- ½ Cucumber (in thin slices, I used my cheese-slicer)
- Some Mint leaves
- Some Pomegranate
For the Easy Peasy Dressing:
- 1 spoon of elderflower syrup (you can buy this in any organic store)
- 2 spoons of fresh lemon juice
So what’s next? Use a ‘sharp-as-hell-knife’ lol and slice away the skin of the orange and grapefruit and then slice them into beautiful slices from around 0,5 cm thick. Slice your cucumber in thin slices, I used my cheese-slicer for this, super handy and it fix the job perfectly in just seconds.. I LIKE! Get a nice plate and spread the fruits and cucumber nicely. Now get a separate small bowl and mix the elderflower-syrup with the lemon juice. Drizzle it over the fruits and cucumber slices (use a small spoon) and top it all of with some fresh mint leaves and pomegranate. This dish ain’t just super super refreshing and delish but I mean.. look at it.. Don’t you just LOVE the colours?! Colourblocking in fashion is SO last season, colourblocking with food is the next big thing.. trust me ;D lmao
This dish goes along with pretty much everything really, we enjoyed this yesterday over a lavish bbq fest (I’m still feeling stuffed..haha). Hope you’ll try to make this too! It’s refreshing, sweet and above all.. DELISH!! x oxo
