Chinese Fruit Salad
from: dicentra

This comes from 1000 Great Recipes. I love fruit salads b/c you can have them for breakfast, lunch or dessert!

SERVES 4

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 lime, juice and zest of
  • 1 (14 ounce) can lychees in heavy syrup
  • 1 mango, stoned and sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 1 star fruit, sliced (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seed

Place the sugar in a small saucepan with the lime zest and 1 ¼ cups water.

Heat gently until the sugar dissolves completely, then increase the heat and boil gently for about 7-8 minutes.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and leave on one side to cool the syrup.

Drain the lychees into a jug and pour the juice into the cooled lime syrup with the lime juice.

Place the fruit in a bowl and toss gently with the syrup. Chill for 1 hour before serving.
