Could not find lychee in our local grocery store so skipped this salad.

This is such a lovely blend of flavors, a great balance of sweet and tropical and tart for summer. I added the lychee juice to the mix, but then I had a lot of liquid. I used a 1:1 proportion of sugar to water -- 1/4 cup of each, though some might like it sweeter.
