Fresh Fruit With Lemon Verbena Simple Syrup

Ingredients

Directions

Simple syrup: combine the water and sugar in a small pan and bring to the boil.
Boil mixture until it is reduced by half.
Stir in the lemon verbena leaves.
Set aside to allow verbena leaves to infuse and the mixture to cool completely.
Salad: Prep the fruit and arrange on a large shallow platter.
Once the simple syrup is cool, use a fine mesh strainer and drizzle the syrup all over the fruit.
*Garnish fruit with a few fresh lemon verbena leaves.
Or cover and chill until ready to serve.
*Tip: fresh lemon verbena leaves wilt quickly.
Garnish the fruit platter with freshly cut lemon verbena leaves [just] before serving.
Yield is estimated.
