- 2 pints strawberries, hulled and halved
- 3 cups fresh or canned pineapple chunks
- 2 bananas, peeled and sliced
- 3 oranges, peeled, pitted, and sliced
- 1 pink grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
- Pomegranate seeds (optional)
Pomegranate Syrup Ingredients:
- 2 large pomegranates
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Make the syrup: Quarter the pomegranates, peel off the rind, and pull the fruit apart into pieces. Carefully pull out the red seeds. Wrap a handful of seeds in cheesecloth and press hard to release all juice into a bowl. Discard spent seeds. Repeat process until all juice has been extracted from remaining seeds. Alternately, process seeds in a blender. Pour this liquid into a clear container and refrigerate for up to 8 hours. Sediment will settle to the bottom. Into a saucepan, ladle clear liquid and add sugar and lemon juice. Heat until the sugar dissolves, then cook until syrup reduces and thickens a little -- about 5 minutes. Pour into a container, cover, and refrigerate.
Make the fruit salad: In a clear-glass bowl, place strawberries, pineapple, bananas, oranges, and grapefruit sections. Toss with two or three tablespoons of the pomegranate syrup. Cover and refrigerate until serving time. Garnish with pomegranate seeds, if desired.
