Lime Scented Strawberry Mango Salad

Did you order mangoes or strawberries to go with your Bountiful Basket? If so here is a yummy salad recipe Ginger tried out last week, and loved, that you could make with some of your fruit:

Lime Scented Strawberry Mango Salad

3/4 Cup Sugar
2 tsp grated lime zest
1/4 Cup fresh lime juice
3 cups trimmed, sliced strawberries (about 2 lbs.)
3 cups peeled, diced mangoes (2 to 3 large mangoes)
1/3 cup water

Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmner until sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Stir in lime zest and juice; let cool to room temperature.

Mix strawberries with mangoes in a large bowl. Add syrup and gently stir util well mixed. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
