Strawberry Kiwi Salad

Strawberry Kiwi Salad

Servings: 4 Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: N/A

Here's what you need:

2 cups strawberries (20-30 berries or so)

4 kiwis (I used green and gold)

Optional: Mint Simple Syrup (recipe follows)

Here's what you do:

-Quarter your strawberries (cut bigger ones into eighths if you feel like it - go crazy!)

-Slice off both ends of your kiwi. Stand on its end and run your knife just along the inside of the skin - really ripe kiwis will separate from their skins pretty easily. You can sometimes just peel the skin right off, but I always end up pulling a lot of kiwi off with it!

-Once your kiwi is de-peeled, cut into smal bite-size pieces. Lather, rinse, and repeat for each kiwi.

-Toss your fruits together with a couple tablespoons of mint simple syrup if you feel like it. Unnecessary, but delicious all the same.

To make mint simple syrup: place 1 cup sugar, one cup water, and 1 loosely packed cup of clean mint leaves in a pan. Bring to a boil, then shut off the heat and leave until cooled (you'll start to smell mint - then you'll know it's good). You can realistically strain it after about 10 minutes, but the longer you leave it, the more minty it will get!
