One of the benefits of staying at a bed and breakfast in Toronto (or anywhere else) is being able to experience new and exciting breakfast recipes. The best breakfast recipe is a combination of good food, good conversation and wonderful people. At the Boatel breakfast is an event every morning with food that stimulates the palate with color, taste and texture.
I am continually on the search for new and exciting breakfast recipes that delight our B & B guests. This Mojito Fruit Salad (hold the rum) is quick and easy to make and a definite 4-star winner with our guests.
This recipe is great for breakfast but also goes well with a chicken or pork dish. You can even add white rum to take and make it a really Mojito Salad.
Mojito Fruit Salad Recipe
Fresh fruit of your choice.
Chopped fresh mint (see tip below)
1 package of Stevia (zero calorie sweetener per for diabetics too)
1 large lime
- Clean and chop your selection of fruit. This morning I used watermelon, mango, grapes, plums and strawberries.
- Chop up fresh mint into salad bowl. I use a special set of Herb Scissors which you can find at any speciality kitchen store. They are safe to use and do a quick and easy job of cutting up herbs. They cost about $15-20 but they are a great timesaver.
- Sprinkle 1 package of Stevia over the salad. I like to use Stevia which is a natural sugar however you can substitute sugar if you wish. 1 package of Stevia equal 2 teaspoons of sugar.
- Grate the lime zest and then squeeze the juice from the lemon into the salad.
- Toss and enjoy.
If you are staying at our bed and breakfast in downtown Toronto then be sure to mention that you want me to make this for you. And if you haven’t booked your Boatel reservation in Toronto yet, then what are you waiting for?
