    Delicious! This can be prepared ahead of time by making the simple syrup and chopping the fruits, just refrigerate seperately and then combine just before serving.

      I've made this several times and I am just now getting around to reviewing it. This fruit salad is super versatile (breakfast, lunch, dinner, whenever), and perfect for summer get-to-gethers. I served this at an Easter barbecue and at Mother's day brunch. At both events, this dish got RAVE reviews. It's amazing what a difference the simple dressing makes!

      This is so good and interesting and different! The flavor the basil imparts after being strained gives it a subtle hint of herb, almost like a mint flavor. I used this on what fruit I had in the house: strawberries, watermelon, honeydew, grapes, apricots and bananas. I think there is enough syrup for two batches. This is definitely worth a try!
