- 2 limes
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 large mangoes (2 1/2 lb total), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
- 3 cups strawberries (3/4 oz)
- 1/4 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger (1 1/2 oz)
Remove zest from 1 lime in strips with a vegetable peeler and cut any white pith from strips with a sharp knife. Squeeze 3 tablespoons juice from limes. Bring zest, water, and sugar to a boil in a 1-quart saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved, then boil, uncovered, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice. Let syrup stand 20 minutes, then remove zest with a slotted spoon and discard.
Toss together mangoes, strawberries, and syrup in a large bowl and sprinkle with ginger.
