Fruit Salad With Orange Syrup

Author: Canadian Living

Steeping the orange peel in syrup gives a subtle flavour to the fruit salad. We chose the fruit for flavour and for its bright spring colours. Pair this salad with Vanilla Bean Amaretti for a lightened-up, dairy-free Passover Seder dessert.

Using peeler, peel zest in strips from orange; set aside. Halve orange and squeeze juice into glass measure to make 1/3 cup. Set aside.

In small saucepan, bring sugar with water to boil over medium heat, stirring just until dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in orange zest; let stand for 10 minutes. Discard zest. Stir in orange juice.
