Ruby Fruit Salad


As the lime juice and brown sugar sit together, they create a delicate syrup that's perfect for the fruit salad.

  • 1 pint blackberries

    People love this fruit salad! I made it for a work picnic and it got gobbled up without any leftovers. And it's a totally gorgeous dish for the table, too!

    This recipe was fantastic. I enlarged it a bit for a gathering of over 20 co-workers and it was all gobbled up with no leftofers. I got multiple compliments and it was easy to make. In addition to the red grapes, blackberries and blueberries I omitted the plums and added strawberries, pineapple and bananas and doubled the glaze and added the leftover pinapple juice after slicing the pineapple. I would definitley keep this recipe as a mainstay in my household.
