Great Summer Recipe

We love this recipe... it is delicious, simple, and very pretty. Great for cookouts, picnics, and summer celebrations.

Summer Fruit Salad

You judge how much of each you want depending on the size of your salad. Sorry about the lack of measurements, but you can judge all to taste.

Watermelon (chunks)
Strawberries (quartered)
Fresh Pineapple (chunks)

Place in a large bowl.
Finely chop about 7 mint leaves and place to side.
Make a simple syrup (1 part water 1/2 cup , 2 parts sugar, 1 cup) Bring to a boil, toss in mint leaves and boil for one minute. Careful not to burn syrup, stir constantly.

remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Pour over fruit to taste. (store any leftover syrup for quick salads or snacks) Toss and serve or chill until serving time. :)

Enjoy a fresh fruity treat!
