by Thea Miller

Kick up the flavor in your next fruit salad. 


Orange Vanilla Syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
Zest and juice of 1 orange
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 pints strawberries, hulled and halved
2 pints blueberries
2 cups green grapes
2 cups red grapes


In a small pan, add the sugar, water, and zest and juice of 1 orange. Over medium heat, stir to dissolve the sugar. Then bring it to a boil. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes to thicken. Stir in the vanilla extract. Set aside to cool.
Prepare all the fruit in a large bowl, pour the cooled syrup over the top and toss together. Chill until ready to serve.
