    2B's's Note:

    I think this recipe came from Canadian Living magazine, but am not sure. The whole meal (which is comprised of Lemongrass Pork, Grilled Pineapple Salad, Coconut Thai Rice and Tropical Fruit With Lime) embodies the Thai tradition of combining all the five tastes: sweet, hot, sour, salty and bitter in one meal.

      Excellent! I made this for dessert for our New Year's Eve Thai dinner. I didn't have any fresh mint so I made the syrup a couple of hours earlier and added dried mint to it. I think this would work with almost any combination of fruit.

      Yum! Served this tonight to finish off my Thai menu and it was a big success. Lovely combination of sweet, fruity flavors. I used the optional mint and it was great. Thanks for posting!
