Made this for part of the Small Group Snacks tonight. Cannot wait to enjoy it!!!!

Lime-scented Mango-Strawberry Salad


3/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. grated lime zest
1/3 c. fresh lime juice
3 cups trimmed, sliced strawberries (about 2 lb)
3 cups peeled, diced mangoes (2 to 3 large mangoes)


Combine sugar and 1/3 cup water in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from ehat and let cool. Stir in lime zest and juice; let cool to room temperature.

Cut up fruit and mix in a large bowl. Add syrup and gently stir until well mixed. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.

You can use this same lime juice syrup with other fruits such as pineapple, bananas, papaya, or kiwi. You can vary the amount and type of fruits depending on what's available.
