THIS IS THE BEST, YUMMIEST BERRY COCKTAIL SALAD RECIPE
with Orange Vanilla Syrup
(CLICK TO WATCH THE COOKING VIDEO BELOW)
SERVING SIZE: 6 dessert size bowls (or 1 Kandee Size serving, as in I'll eat the whole bowl myself)
TIME TO PREPARE: 5 minutes unless you're way faster than me at cutting fruit
Time to cook orange vanilla sauce: 20 minutes (most of that is the simmering though. You could have that simmering while you ate dinner or lunch and when you're done,. so is the saucy)
2 cups of sliced Strawberries
1 package (or 1 cup) of fresh Raspberries
2 cups of red or green grapes (cut in halves to prevent any lil ones from choking)
1 cup fresh blueberries
Ingredients for Orange Vanilla Syrup:
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
juice of half an orange
Cut strawberries in half or quarters and cut all grapes in half. (Cutting the grapes is what takes us the longest!) Put all berries and grapes in medium bowl and set aside.
In a medium sauce pan, pour in water, sugar, vanilla and squeeze your half an orange. I used a flour sifter to catch all the seeds and "feathery" orange parts, that I don't' like.
Place sauce pan over medium heat on the stove until it reached a boil. Turn it down so simmer for about 15-20 minutes and looks like pale maple syrup, it will get thicker and syrupy. Remove from heat and let it cool, until it's cool enough to put in the fridge until it's all the way cooled down. Then pour it all over the berries and gently move all the berries around so they're all coated the in the syrupy goodness!
You can place in the fridge and let berries marinate in the orange vanilla sauce, or you can just eat it right away, which to be honest, it's so good, we can't wait and just eat it as soon as I'm done stirring.
