Article Image
Scott Phillips

Servings: 4 to 6

A margarita-inspired syrup enhances the tart-sweet flavor of this summery fruit salad. For an alcohol-free version, use water in place of the tequila.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb. (2 cups) fresh blueberries
  • 4 medium kiwi, peeled, halved lengthwise, then sliced crosswise
  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup 100% agave tequila, preferably reposado
  • 2 medium limes, finely grated to yield 2 tsp. zest and squeezed to yield 2 Tbs. juice

Preparation

  • Put the blueberries, kiwi, and mango in a medium serving bowl. Combine the sugar, tequila, and lime zest in a 1-quart saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and stir in the lime juice. Pour the warm syrup over the fruit and gently toss. Cover and refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Gently toss before serving.

Make Ahead Tips

The fruit salad can be made up to 6 hours ahead and refrigerated.

    I recently made the salad and it turned out perfect. I used 1800 tequila, it was the best!!

    This is really good. I didn't have the Agava Tequila so I used regular tequila. It was awesome!

    Very easy to make; we substituted the water for the tequila and it made a very nice brunch salad.
