A Little Cuisine... Strawberry Citrus Salad

It's the summertime and you know what that means - a lot of food fests with friends where you are expected to bring a culinary contribution.  Does the thought of cooking make you panic?  Fear not!  I have your back.  You are going to look good.

Behold, straight from www.epicurious.com, feast your eyes on this:

Easy.  No cooking.  Gourmet-tasting.  Only four ingredients.
And, even easier than Epicurious did it…….no measuring.

Strawberry Citrus Salad
Strawberries, sliced
Oranges, peeled and sliced
Brown Sugar
Mint leaves, chopped fine

Use a trifle bowl or glass bowl if you have it.  It’s a gorgeously visual salad. 

Layer of strawberries, sprinkle of brown sugar, and mint.
Layer of oranges, sprinkle of brown sugar, and mint.
Berry-sugar-mint layer.
Orange-sugar-mint layer.
Keep going until you think you have enough.  Then make even more.  Trust me on this.  Any leftovers are wonderful over yogurt for your breakfast the next morning.  Or on top of waffles.  Or ice cream (yes, ice cream for breakfast.  You know you want to).

The good thing about this salad, is that when the strawberry season is over, it’s great with raspberries, blackberries, huckleberries....whatever berries you can find will work.

If you want to bake, make a sweet biscuit  and whip some cream.  This stuff makes for a great shortcake.
