“This is a sweet fruit salad intended to be served as a low-fat dessert. The syrup is essential; without it, you just have an ordinary fruit salad, for which you probably don't need a recipe! You can vary the fruits to use what you have on hand. This is especially good with strawberries and melon. Bananas might be too overpowering, though.”

Word up -- I used 1/4 c sugar + 1/4 c honey instead of the full c sugar, plus I substituted blueberries for some raspberries. It was very tasty!

I halved the recipe. Used strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and an apple as my fruit. Half sugar, half honey. May use less sugar next time. We found the mint in the salad a little too leaf-y texture-wise so I may omit it next time or simmer it into the syrup. Also, did not use water for the syrup... I used limoncello instead ;) DELISH.

This was absolutely wonderful! Very refreshing yet sweet enough that it tastes like a desert. I did take the advise of another reviewer and used half honey. Very nice flavor and a little healthier. Thanks! :-)
