This salad may be simple--note the very short ingredient list--but is full of exotic, refreshing flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 2/3 cup water in a small saucepan over high heat until small bubbles form. Add tea and remove from heat. Steep 3 minutes and stir. Strain tea and let cool; discard tea bags.

Step 2

Meanwhile, seed and thinly slice kumquats*.

Step 3

In a small bowl, make dressing: Combine chopped kumquats, jasmine tea, oil, salt, and pepper.

Step 4

Put lettuce, mint, sliced kumquats, and almonds in a salad bowl. Add dressing and toss gently to coat.

Step 5

* To seed kumquats, either thinly slice each kumquat crosswise about a third of the way into the fruit or quarter the fruit lengthwise; then remove seeds with a knife tip.
