Simple and Elegant Fruit Dish – an inspiration from a visit to Manzanillo, Mexico. Papaya, Mango and Strawberries with Basil Simple Syrup and Fresh Lemon:  allow the papaya and mango to fully ripen; cut into small chunks, toss with the juice of 1 lemon and the zest of the lemon. Add in a handful of sliced strawberries. Gently mix.

Basil Syrup:

2 Cups white sugar, 1 1/2 cups water, 3 tablespoons corn syrup – bring slowly to a boil over medium heat. Add a large bunch of finely chopped basil and reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Toss with the fruit and allow to meld in the refrigerator for a couple hours before serving.
