Refreshing Citrus and Strawberry Salad

>> April 3, 2011

Looks like my strawberry fever isn't over yet. Since strawberries are very photogenic, and we needed a hero recipe for our food photo session in the AFS Studio this morning, I prepared citrus and strawberry salad. I got this recipe from The simplicity of preparation is what attracted me to make it, plus of course, strawberries being super photogenic.

- fresh strawberries, sliced
- fresh oranges, peeled and sliced cross-wise
- thinly sliced pepper mint leaves for added flavor
- 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 1/8 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (or more, depends how much dressing you want to pour in)

1. Mix the freshly squeezed orange juice and brown sugar in a small bowl. Dissolve the sugar.
2. In a separate bowl, toss the strawberries, oranges and thinly sliced mint leaves.
3. Using a spoon, sprinkle the orange juice and sugar mixture to evenly coat the fruits. I like using spoon versus pouring it entirely because I don't really like salad swimming on dressing. Using a spoon helps me control the amount of dressing to put in it.
4. Leave it for a few minutes to let the flavor blend together before serving.

I work and live at night time. I am a person deprived of natural light. I rarely cook in the morning as I'm almost always asleep, else busy with house chores. As much as I love natural light in my photography, I'm afraid I don't usually have that luxury, unless I sacrifice my sleep, or make an effort to stay up longer during the day to do a cooking + photo session. So I depend on my flash, and sometimes, available light from my fluorescent bulbs. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats the natural light, I am, so far, satisfied with my shots using my flash that I learned to love.

I always look forward to the weekends for some sunlight.
