Fruit Salad with Pomegranite Seeds, Strawberries and Starfruit

I know I’ve been slacking lately in the postings, so I’m going to make it up to you by posting several tonight.  Here we have a simple fruit salad, and in case you don’t know, I’m going to tell you how to make it.  We’ve all got to start somewhere. 🙂

Ingredients:
1 pomegranite, washed and de-seeded
1 starfruit, washed and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 lb. strawberries, washed and coursely chopped
1/4-1/3 cup white sugar

Directions:

1.  Toss your cut strawberries into a bowl with a lid that is twice the size of the whole of your fruit.  Sprinkle the sugar over the fruit (I would start by scooping out 1/3 cup worth and sprinkling a third at a time), close the lid and give it a shake, up and down and back and forth.  Let strawberries sit a few minutes.  Check to see if syrup is forming, if not, use more sugar and repeat shaking process.

2.  When syrup starts to form (you’ll know because it’ll be thicker than just the juice and sweet), deposit the rest of the fruit into the bowl.  Give it a good shake and let stand 15 minutes before serving.  Serve chilled or at room temp.  It never lasts long here, so I don’t worry about refrigeration, but you can move it to a smaller bowl if you want once the syrup has formed (though the big bowl helps to re-coat with the syrup after it has sat a while).
