I also used mint instead of basil. I personally think the simple syrup is tooo much!! I made it as stated and all of my fruit was swimming. I like to taste the fruit so I dumped almost of of the liquid out after about 10 minutes. Next time I will make a 1/4 of the syrup
Nice and flavorful with good texture. The colors and the basil make for a nice visual presentation as well.
Fantastic. Made this as a side salad for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it. I didn't have basil on hand, so I substituted mint. Delicious! I don't think I'll even try it with basil now. I'll definitely be making this again.
I made this for a brunch and everyone loved it. The basil was such a nice twist for this fruit salad. I'd definitely make it again.
This was a delcious recipe that i enjoyed as a side salad. However the basil leaves i will skip next time. When cooked they dont smell pleasant or taste that either. Also, in stead of sugar i add splenda to make it a little more healthy. Besides that it was good i highly recommend.
