    duonyte's Note:

    I love lemon thyme and always have several plants available. This recipe makes use of the wonderful melons of summer and fresh thyme. You can make up just the syrup and drizzle it on any fruit you want, as needed, if this quantity is too large for you. The syrup keeps for about a week in the refrigerator. From Woman's Day magazine.

      Great fruit salad! I didn't measure the melon amounts, just used 1/2 of each melon and a package of blueberries. i also used dried thyme and splenda in the syrup but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!

      This was fabulous. I could eat this every day. All my kids loved it and ate fruits they would normally complain about. We will make this again. I mixed the syrup with the fruit as we needed it. I have leftover syrup that I am trying to decide what to do with, hhmmm.
