I call this “Summer Salad” because I somehow associate the coolness of mint to summer. All of a sudden, it becomes omnipresent – fridge, salads, juices… And now that I’ve learned chopping it up like a professional, it makes life much easier 🙂
I’m not a heavy mint user in the salads, but with this one I’m quiet generous.
Not just the taste, but the camaraderie of white and green looks gorgeous as well. See for yourself…
