Easy Fruit Salad

Easy Fruit Salad

The red and greens of this salad look a little Christmasy but that was purely accidental. Using regular orange oranges instead of blood oranges might be a nice adjustment to the color palette.

  • 2 TBs  golden syrup
  • 1 TB lemon juice
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries
  • 2 blood oranges
  • 20 grapes
  • 2 kiwis

Mix golden syrup and lemon juice.

Hull and quarter strawberries.  Toss with golden syrup, lemon sauce.  Cover and refrigerate.

Thick slice oranges, half & quarter slices and cut away the rind.  Cut grapes in half.  Peel and slice kiwis, then cut slices in half.  Cover these fruits and refrigerate.

An hour before serving, mix both strawberries and other fruits and allow to sit at room temperature.IMG_8858
