Fruit Salad with Vanilla-Apple Syrup

Fruit Salad with Vanilla-Apple Syrup

Serves 6

30 minutes or fewer

The syrup used in this salad is a wonderful all-purpose sweetener for plain yogurt, iced tea and cocktails.
Vanilla-Apple Syrup
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 2 2-inch strips lemon zest
  • ¼ vanilla bean
Fruit Salad
  • 2 medium mangoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 pint strawberries, quartered (about 2 cups)
  • 1 pint blueberries (about 2 cups)

1. To make Vanilla-Apple Syrup: Place apple juice and lemon zest in pot. Slice vanilla bean in half and scrape seeds into juice. Add bean to pot as well. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to medium-low, and simmer 30 minutes, or until mixture is syrup-like and reduced to 1/3 cup. Remove lemon zest and vanilla bean, and cool to room temperature.

2. To make Fruit Salad: Toss mangoes, strawberries, and blueberries with Vanilla-Apple Syrup, and serve.

I made this before, and it was absolutely delicious! I plan on making it again when my family gets together this summer.

Do you think the syrup would keep for a bit in the fridge?
