I like my fruit unadorned, but this was spectacular. Would be lovely to topped with yogurt too.

Lemon Verbena Fruit Salad
From the Herbfarm Cookbook by Jerry Traunfeld

Author notes:
The heavenly citrus scent of lemon verbena intensifies the fruit flavor in this refreshing salad. It's perfect for brunch or a light dessert.

Serves 8

1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup (gently packed) fresh lemon verbena leaves, thick center vein removed
2 tablespoons fresh squeed lime juice
8 cups mixed sliced ripe fruit and berries, such as melon, peaches, nectariens, apricots, plums, pitted sweet cheeries, grapes, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries.

Process the sugar and lemon verbena in a food processor to a very smooth green paste, scraping down the sides as necessary. Add the lime juice and process briefly. Shortly before serving, toss this dressing with the fruit in a large mixing bowl.
