You can make this festive fruit salad several hours in advance - but don't store it too long or the berries will soften and lose a bit of their flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Bring 1 1/2 cups water and sugar to a boil. Cook just until clear, 2 to 3 minutes. Let syrup cool briefly, then add 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves. Set aside to steep and cool.
  2. Rinse and hull strawberries and cut them into quarters (or sixths if very large).
  3. With a small, sharp knife, cut ends off oranges. Set 1 orange cut side down on a cutting board. Following its curve with the knife, slice off peel and white pith. Holding orange over a bowl to catch juice, cut between inner membranes and fruit release segments; drop segments into bowl and discard membranes. Repeat with remaining oranges.
  4. Add strawberries to oranges and pour basil syrup over fruit. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.
