    Cookgirl's Note:

    Adapted from Use a colorful variety of seasonal fresh fruit of your choice: peaches, other types of berries or melons, red seedless grapes, etc. I reduced the amount of sugar from the original 2-1 ratio but please feel free to add more. Lemon verbena is a favorite herb of mine! Recently I made this using galia melon only (see photo).

    1. 1
      Simple syrup: combine the water and sugar in a small pan and bring to the boil.
    2. 2
      Boil mixture until it is reduced by half.
    3. 3
      Stir in the lemon verbena leaves. Set aside to allow verbena leaves to infuse and the mixture to cool completely.

      Salad: Prep the fruit and arrange on a large shallow platter.
    5. 5
      Once the simple syrup is cool, use a fine mesh strainer and drizzle the syrup all over the fruit.

      *Garnish fruit with a few fresh lemon verbena leaves. Or cover and chill until ready to serve.
    7. 7
      *Tip: fresh lemon verbena leaves wilt quickly. Garnish the fruit platter with freshly cut lemon verbena leaves [just] before serving.
