Portuguese Fruit Salad

Portuguese Fruit Salad

If you are a regular visitor to I Cook The World, you will probably realize I have a love affair with this country.  So much so, my family are relocating there soon.  We have purchased our home in the central region and we look forward to carrying out the work to make it our forever home, where I’m sure we will enjoy this fruit salad regularly

In the meantime, I will be sure to bring you the best recipes I can find in Portugal.  This beautiful Portuguese Fruit Salad is the first.  Perfect after any meal or as a snack at any time.  Adding mint to the syrup gives that little extra boost of flavor.  You will never look at fruit salad in the same way again.

If you love European food why not check out some of my? Spanish recipes.
