Anticipating good weather...

Yeah I know, it snowed today, during Spring Break, and yet I am thinking about summer fruit salads!

I made this recipe last year for a dinner party- total hit! The basic idea is making a reduction sauce (don't worry, not scary like it might sound!), and then dripping it over fruit-- easy right?!!

One caveat: the sauce is pretty flavorful, so don't put it on the fruit, store it in the fridge overnight and think you're going to eat it... bottom line, put the sauce on when serving!

Fruit Salad with Lime-Ginger Sauce
Simmer for a while until it is syrupy, reduced to 1/4 cup (15-20 minutes):
1 C lime juice
1/4 C sugar
1/4 tea salt

Then take off the heat and add:
1 TB lime zest
1 inch or 1 TB ginger, minced (you'll strain this later)
1 TB lemon juice

Steep 1 minute and strain it, pour over fruit:
honeydew melon
(or anything you've got on hand!)
