Lime-Ginger Syrup for Fruit Salads (Weight Watchers)

Total Time

This recipe was in a Weight Watcher's meeting booklet. It was a fruit salad recipe, but the key ingredient was this syrup. Really, you could make up any fruit salad combination and toss this in. It really brightens up the flavor of the fruit. A 1/2 cup serving of fruit salad with this syrup is 2 WW points.

This syrup really makes fruit salads interesting, and makes me want to eat more fruit. I like it just the way it is but it's very lime-y so a person who doesn't like sour stuff might want to use less lime juice. I double this recipe when I cook it.

I really enjoyed this - I've been looking for a syrup-sauce recipe for fruit salad for a while, and I'm really glad I tried this one. I made as directed except I skipped the sugar and only used raw tupelo honey. I served over a mixture of fresh pineapple, strawberries, green grapes, blackberries and 3 different types of apples - red delicious, braeburn and honey crisp. Fresh and delicious flavor and very easy to make. Everyone really enjoyed it - I made it for a family gathering. Thanks for posting Pam-I-Am - tagged for September Tailgating in the Diabetic Forum.
