Summer Berry Salad

For this classic summer berry salad recipe, an orange-flavored syrup bathes ripe, sweet strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries. This is all about using ripe, seasonal, flavorful fruit, so buy the best you can find.

Instructions

  1. 1In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together the sugar, 1/4 cup water, the orange zest and juice. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the mixture becomes syrupy, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until chilled.
  2. 2In a large serving bowl, toss together the berries. Drizzle the berries with the syrup. Toss gently, garnish with the mint, and serve.
