Fresh fruit salad with blue Curacao

  • 1 small golden delicious apple
  • 4 pears
  • 1 banana
  • 200 grams of cherries
  • 4 apricots
  • 2 peaches, all washed, peeled and with stones and cores removed, cut into small pieces and moisten with lemon juice (keep the yellow peel of 1 lemon to one side)
  • 200 grams sugar
  • ¼ litre of orange juice
  • 3 spoons of blue curacao syrup (do not use the liquor)
  • a small pinch of salt
Put in the blender the lemon peel and juice, the orange juice, salt, sugar, and the blue curacao syrup blend to mix well together. Put the fruit into dishes and cover with the syrup, serve at once.
It is incredibly delicious on hot humid days. The syrup can be made more or less sweet according to taste by adding or subtracting sugar. It is better not to marinade the fruit in the syrup, as the blue will give the fruit a bad colour. The colour of the fruit gives a vivacity to the dish and adds to the attraction of a somewhat unusual fruit salad.
