What's the best way to enjoy all of your favourite fruits!?! In this salad! This is better than ice cream on a hot summer day, and believe me it got hot all this week, and this was such a refreshing fruit salad to enjoy on such days. One of the things I look for in a recipe (and I've mentioned this in other reviews), is how well it keeps refrigerated. The salad keeps very well, but the sauce is alright. Let the salad and sauce come close to room temperature and the sauce becomes good again.
WONDERFUL fruit salad! What a great combination of fruits, and I loved the lemongrass coconut syrup! I sprinkled the cut fruit with a bit of Fruit Fresh to help keep the bananas from getting yucky, but other than that, made it as-written. I didn't feel like dealing with the fresh lemongrass, so I opted to use the frozen stuff. I almost added some sliced starfruit to this, but my starfruit wasn't ripe enough. DH was looking at me a bit funny today because of the mish-mash of ZWT recipes that I was making today, but he happily scarfed down a big bowl of this stuff. This is definitely going into the keeper file for summer desserts, thanks for posting! Made for The Honeys for ZWT8
