Spring has sprung when you can celebrate with some fresh fruit! OH how I love to add this to an evening meal! So refreshing and easy to make!


  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • Nice of 1 orange
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tsp fresh vanilla
  • 4 pints strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 2 pints of blueberries
  • 2 cups red grapes, halved
  • 2 cups green grapes, halved

Place the sugar, water, orange juice, and zest into a small space pan and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to low and simmer for 15-20 min. to thicken slightly. Set aside to cool, then store in the fridge until cold. Mix together all the flirt in a large pretty bowl, and pour the syrup over the top, tossing gently. Garnish with fresh mint and serve.

This makes a great salad for get togethers. Everyone will love it!
