Chatelaine Triple Tested

Minty lime syrup drizzled over berries and pineapple makes for a zingy fruit salad.


  • 1 lime

  • 1-in. piece ginger

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 2 cups pineapple

  • 2 cups raspberries

  • 1 cup strawberries

  • 1 cup blueberries


  • Finely grate 1 tsp peel and squeeze 1 tbsp juice from a lime. Peel, then thinly slice, a 1 inch piece of ginger. Place ginger, 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup water, lime peel and juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered, without stirring, until syrupy, 2 to 3 minutes. Strain, then cool at room temperature or in refrigerator.

  • Prepare 6 cups fresh-cut fruit, such as pineapple, raspberries and strawberries. Arrange on a platter and sprinkle with a handful of blueberries. Drizzle about 3 tbsp syrup over fruit just before serving.

Make-ahead tip Refrigerate syrup in a sealed jar for up to 1 week. Prepare fruit up to 1 day ahead and store in the refrigerator in separate resealable plastic bags. Bring to room temperature before serving.
