Lime Scented Strawberry Mango Salad

Mangoes . . . yummmm! I was talking to a friend this morning who reminded me of this recipe. Along with my ADD, or a side effect of it is, I forget things easily. I went to my good friend, Google, to look up this recipe and I was pleasantly surprised that the fourth entry for this recipe was found here on my blog from last April. I am reposting the recipe because it is a great side dish or dessert.

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
