Fruit Salad My Way for Holiday Brunch

Strawberries are at their best in late spring – early summer here (we have stocked up quite a bit and put them in the freezer. These frozen strawberries will be good in smoothies, shakes and ice-cream). We normally have oranges or tangelos after our dinner as a palate cleanser but around this time of the year we mix fresh strawberries with our citrus and turn them into the refreshing fruit salad.

For 2 people, you will need:
 8-10 fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
2 navel oranges or 1 navel orange and 2 tangelos, cut into 6 segments (cut the centre off and discard the seeds and cut away from the skin with sharp knife)
3-4 Tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon sugar
A pinch of salt

Mix the juice with sugar and salt, stir until dissolved and pour over the fruits. Refrigerate and serve chilled. You can also garnish with a slice or 2 of lime before serving.
