Strawberries and Mint | www.tasteandtellblog.com

I have come to realize that I trust the opinions and suggestions from bloggers more and more. I went to search for a recipe online last week, and instead of trusting some “random” website, I find myself searching out blogs. I guess I just trust that if someone has taken the time to photograph and write about what they’ve made, their opinion is a lot easier to trust than a recipe just thrown up on some website somewhere in cyberspace.

This is also why I have loved asking you what you do with your vegetables/herbs. I’ve found some great recipes and suggestions, and I know I can trust them because they come my fellow blogging friends.

When I asked for suggestions to use up my mint many weeks ago, I got back many great suggestions. But quite a few of you suggested using it in a simple fruit salad. I couldn’t get this idea out of my mind, so a few weekends ago, I decided to use the mint for our breakfast.

It doesn’t get any easier than this. Cut up some strawberries, add in the mint and the juice of a lime. Delicious!! I did discover that I’m not big on chewing on the actual mint leaves, though. Next time, I think I’ll let the leaves soak in the lime juice for awhile beforehand, and then strain the leaves out. Or make a simple syrup like Glamah suggested.

A breakfast of strawberries and mint, cantaloupe from the garden and French toast – you can’t go wrong with that!

    What a lovely breakfast! Great idea to use mint with strawberries, although I totally agree with you about mint moderation. :-) I should have french toast more often, it’s so good!

    I find myself doing the same thing when I look for recipes..I always add blog to the end of whatever I’m searching for. It’s nice to read what they liked and didn’t like or would change next time! Love it!
    Strawberries look good.. so does the french toast!! Yummm.. But syrup gives me heartburn..

    That looks like a really nice way to start the day. I like using mint this way but it seems that I do not do it nearly often enough.

    Thanks for visiting. I agree with you 100%. Our blogger friends are the best cooks and their recipes are tried and tested. I rarely seek for random recipes and whenever I tried them they were a failure. I think I have to post of all my failures one day. I love fresh mint but never though of using it with fruit. Shall have this in mind next time.
