Why This Recipe Works

For a fresh, vibrant fruit salad in the late winter, we started with a selection of tropical fruits, which boasted plenty of sweetness and nuanced flavor. To provide juiciness and acidity, we paired the tropical fruits with citrus and then used a lime syrup to tie all the flavors together. A final addition of a mildly flavored, crisp vegetable, which was softened slightly in the syrup, gave the salads just the right amount of texture without masking the bright fruit flavor.
