Citrus-Spiked Fruit Salad

This recipe is as simple as it gets.  So simple, I have little words to share for this Meatless Monday recipe.

You could totally serve this with brunch.. at a baby shower, before or after (or BOTH!) a weeknight dinner, or even for entertaining guests. 

To make ahead, I would suggest to wait to mix the chopped fruit with the sugar syrup, and toss together just before it is time to serve. 

Really simple, and how gorgeous would this be on your table for all to see.. and eat!!  It didn’t last long at our house.  I made a full batch on a Sunday afternoon and only dressed half with the syrup and save the other half for later. 

Yea.. later didn’t happen. 

We ate just about all of it. 

Piggies, we are.  But, for any consolation.. we were so water logged and full of fruit, we skipped lunch.

    actual effort to generate a really good article… but what can I
    say… I put things off a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

  3. Good post however , I was wondering if you could write a litte

    bit more. Thank you!
