Minted , lime & ginger syrup fruit salad

on 11/06/2009

A simple yet well-flavored dessert!

I wanted to make a more simple dessert of fresh fruits I got from the market. I made a fruit salad with a twist. This is easy & so yummy!
Printable recipe here!
Recipe: For 2 persons
Ingredients:
200 gr of fresh strawberries, cleaned, hulled & cut into 2 or 3
1 ripe mango, peeled & cut up into chunks
250 gr of seedless grapes, cleaned & cut in 2
juice of 1/2 lime
2 tablespoons of ginger syrup
2 or 3 sprigs of fresh Moroccan mint, cleaned & leaves torn ( no stalks )
Method:
1. Take a bowl & place the cut up fruit in it.
2. Add the lime juice & the ginger syrup. Mix carefully with a spoon.
3. Taste! It has to taste fab, not too sweet!
4. Place cling film over the top & place in the fridge for at least 1 hour. I prefer 2 to 3 hours.
5. This is lovely enjoyed just as that or with some lovely vanilla ice cream.

  32. First of all this is drop dead gorgeous. And it sounds so fresh and good too. I seem to be the only one who's not familiar with ginger syrup. Do you make it or buy it at the market? I love ginger – do you just add some to a simple syrup? I'm beginning to think I've lived in the back woods too long.Sam

    Thanks for all of the wonderful comments on my blog Sophie. I dropped by and found that your blog is also filled with great recipes. I like this one because sometimes simple foods are the most surprising for our taste buds. This looks fantastic and I'll have to try it in the spring when our fruit is fresh :)

  51. My husband and i ended up being really peaceful Edward managed to do his reports because of the ideas he was given when using the site. It’s not at all simplistic to simply find yourself making a gift of helpful hints that many many people have been selling. Therefore we consider we have got you to thank because of that. The main explanations you have made, the easy site menu, the friendships you can aid to engender – it’s got most powerful, and it’s leading our son in addition to the family consider that that matter is pleasurable, and that is pretty essential. Thanks for everything!
