Composed Fruit Salad with Ginger-Lime Syrup

Scott Peterson

Most fruit salads are served as chunky mixes—appealing to the mouth, yes, but less so to the eye. With a stylish green-and-gold palette, this composed salad is an elegant alternative. A zingy ginger-lime syrup to pour on top makes the flavors sing.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar

  • 5 slices (1/4-in. thick) lime
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 quarts sliced or chopped fruit

Preparation

  1. In a 1- to 1 1/2-quart pan, combine 1 1/2 cups water, 1 cup sugar, 10 slices unpeeled fresh ginger (each about the size of a quarter), and 5 slices (1/4-in. thick) lime.
