Orange, Grapefruit and Mint Salad: Grapefruit is a wonderful ingredient, with its unique, inimitable taste and beautiful pinkish hue. The flavour of grapefruit is very rare as it combines tanginess, tartness and a mild sweetness, which is sure to tickle your taste buds!

In this amazing salad, grapefruit comes together with orange and mint leaves, dressed in a lovely orange sauce. The peppy flavour of mint is a perfect match for the tanginess of this salad, and the result is awesome.

Refrigerate the Orange, Grapefruit and Mint Salad for at least an hour before serving. If you like fruits in your salad check out our section of Fruit Based Salads that are made using fruits, or a combination of fruits with vegetables and pulses.
