While in New York City on the 4th of July, I stumbled upon this local recipe. It’s a healthy and refreshing salad, perfect for summertime. Mangos are reported to be a good source of iron and are high in antioxidants. Clementines are a good source of Vitamin C, potassium, thiamin, and niacin. They also contain fiber and are a good natural energy boost. Clementines have almost no fat, and an average Clementine has only about 35 calories.
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
4 mint leaves
Peel mangoes and clementines. Cut into small pieces and place in a medium size bowl. Add the teaspoon of grated lemon peel and ½ teaspoon of lemon juice. Chop mint leaves in small strips and add to the bowl. Mix all ingredients well and serve. Enjoy the wonderful flavors!
