For the final week of BM#65, I opted to make Kids Delight themed on Soups and Salads. Now I know I am not a great soup or salad person and given a chance would always miss it out. At least my kids like soup, so I have made some soups for them in the past. However, none of us are big on those actual salads other than the simple Indian Version.
When I was thinking about what to make for the kids on this theme, I naturally wanted to select dishes that they will enjoy. I remember my SIL talking about Fruits salads all the time and how her kids love it. I wanted to experiment the same with mine as well and wanted to include some dressing as well.
Today’s Salad is with Fruits. I got all the fruits that were available and those I like. I wanted to make as bite size cubes, then opted for this size.
The drizzle is a simple version of a thin sugar syrup flavored with lemon and mint. Mint used is ground and cooked in the sugar syrup and finally, the lemon is added to make a clear dressing.
I used Mangoes, Apple, Pineapple, Watermelon, Pomegranate, Kiwi.
The colorful combination of fruits along with the drizzle was an awesome combination.
Fruit Salad with Mint Lemon Drizzle

- Add the sugar and water and bring to a boil. Simmer till it gets little thick. Add ground fresh mint leaves. Let it sit for a while.
