Lemon Grass and Ginger Infused Fruit Salad Recipe

Lemon Grass and Ginger Infused Fruit Salad Recipes

Ingredients :

60g caster (superfine) sugar

2 x 2 cm piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced

1 stem lemon grass, bruised and halved

1 large passion fruit

1 Fiji red papaya

1/2 honeydew melon

1 large mango

1 small fresh pineapple

12 fresh lychees

3 tbsp mint, shredded

Method :

Put the sugar, ginger and lemon grass in a small saucepan, add 125ml water and stir over low heat to dissolve the sugar. Boil for 5 minutes, or until reduced to 80ml and cool. Strain the syrup and add the passion fruit pulp. Peel and seed the papaya and melon. Cut into 4cm (1 1/2") cubes. Peel the mango and cut the flesh into cubes, discarding the stone. Peel, halve and core the pineapple and cut into cubes. Peel the lychees, then make a slit in the flesh and carefully remove the seed. Put all the fruit in a large serving bowl. Pour on  the syrup, or serve separately if preferred. Garnish with the shredded mint.

Papaya is sometimes sold as pawpaw, but is actually a different fruit. The Fiji red papaya is shaped like a football and has reddish flesh. If fresh lychees are not available, tinned ones are fine.

Serves 4 - 6
