Today is a hot day in New York.
98F, thats 36C, thats hot folks.
The only thing I want to eat when its this hot is fruits and berries.
And drink lots of water off course.
This is a very simple but tasty fruit salad with ginger syrup.
It really cools you down a bit.
Watermelon and strawberry salad with ginger syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 2inch peeled piece of fresh ginger
1/4 watermelon, in cubes
3 cups strawberries, hulled and halved
Start with the syrup.
Bring sugar, water and ginger to a boil in a small saucepan.
Let it simmer for 5 minutes, cool.
Discard the ginger.
Place watermelon, strawberries and fresh mint in a large bowl and ad the syrup, mix well, cool and serve.
