|My Favorite Fruit Salad
Recipe (c) Jamie Oliver 2002
Yield: 2 servings
Always a winner if you can find good fresh fruit. The Prosecco gives it a twist.
1 vanilla pod
2 ounces (55 milliliters) water
6 tablespoons sugar
Grapefruit juice, reserved from grapefruit
Small handful blueberries
4 strawberries, halved
2 yellow and red plums, stones removed and cut into 1/8ths
Small handful raspberries
1/2 a pink grapefruit, segmented and juice reserved
1/2 orange, segmented
1/2 melon, cubed
1/4 bottle Prosecco wine, chilled
Creme fraiche, for serving
Remove the vanilla seeds from the pod and put seeds and pod into a small pan. Add the water, sugar and reserved grapefruit juice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer to make a syrup. Put in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled.
Toss the prepared fruit in the chilled syrup. Spoon onto plates and pour over the chilled Prosecco. Serve with creme fraiche.
