Recipe by ASHLEY_S
"This is a sweet fruit salad intended to be served as a low-fat dessert. The syrup is essential; without it, you just have an ordinary fruit salad, for which you probably don't need a recipe! You can vary the fruits to use what you have on hand. This is especially good with strawberries and melon. Bananas might be too overpowering, though."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1-inch strips of lemon zest
mango, pitted, peeled, and cut into chunks
white peaches, pitted and cut into bite-sized pieces
Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored, and sliced
4 (6 ounce) containers
finely chopped fresh mint
Word up -- I used 1/4 c sugar + 1/4 c honey instead of the full c sugar, plus I substituted blueberries for some raspberries. It was very tasty!
I halved the recipe. Used strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and an apple as my fruit. Half sugar, half honey. May use less sugar next time. We found the mint in the salad a little too leaf-y texture-wise so I may omit it next time or simmer it into the syrup. Also, did not use water for the syrup... I used limoncello instead ;) DELISH.
This was absolutely wonderful! Very refreshing yet sweet enough that it tastes like a desert. I did take the advise of another reviewer and used half honey. Very nice flavor and a little healthier. Thanks! :-)
Lovely. The lemon simple syrup is a delicious enhancement to these beautiful summer fruits. Thanks for sharing!
Outstanding! I read the other reviews, and changed it slightly. I added the mint to the sauce and strained it out with the cinnamon and lemon zest. I didn't change the sugar, but doubled the amount of sauce and used about 2/3rds of it on the fruit. I also cut the recipe from 12 servings to 4. YUM!!
Wonderful way to flavor simple syrup! Now I want to try lemon and mint, lemon and ginger, lemon, ginger and mint, orange and cinnamon...endless possibilities!
