Cooking Light JULY 2005

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup seedless green grapes, halved
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes, halved
  • 3 plums, cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges
  • 2 peaches, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges
  • 2 nectarines, cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges
  • 2 limes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 6 mint sprigs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • Mint sprigs (optional)

Preparation

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; cover and chill.

Carefully remove 6 (2-inch) strips of rind from limes using a vegetable peeler, making sure to avoid the white pithy part of the rind. Combine lime strips, water, sugar, and 6 mint sprigs in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 5 minutes). Discard lime strips and mint sprigs; cool. Stir in chopped mint, juice, and grated rind. Pour over fruit, tossing gently to coat. Garnish with additional mint sprigs, if desired.
