– 1/3 cup Sugar– 1/2 serrano or jalapeno chile– 6 cups mixed cut fruit
Why is this unique ingredient?
While I’m not a huge fan of licorice, the flavor when cooked with the syrup is subtle and adds the perfect little something. Star anise is a star shaped seed pod from an evergreen shrub grown in Vietnam. It has a sweet licorice type flavor and is found in Asian five spice powder. It's used in soups and savory dishes,
Fruit softens the heat but if there are kids, use a jalapeno with the seeds removed. If people eating it like heat, go with a serrano which is 5x hotter than a jalapeno. This will definitely get your attention!
If you’re serving this to kids who might not care for licorice or spice, remove a portion of the salad before adding the dressing. You can make a honey lime dressing to pour over the fruit, which takes no time at all.
