Green Fruits in Jasmine Tea Syrup

This refreshing recipe by Jane Pettigrew came to us by way of Joanna Pruess.  It  works beautifully as a salad or a dessert.  If you are serving this as a dessert, Joanna pairs it with a black tea and cranberry biscotti or a ginger spice cookie.

Joanna described this lovely fruit salad as Jasmine tea and sweetened lime juice that transform a simple trio of green fruits into an ambrosial offering. Its memory will linger on your taste buds. Savor the fruit alone or with a scoop of green tea ice cream. I couldn't have said it better myself!
