Fruit Salad with Basil Ice Chips

Fruit Salad with Basil Ice Chips

  • 1 cup lemonade
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, chopped plus a few whole leaves
  • ½ small watermelon, seeded and cubed
  • 4 kiwi peeled, halved, and sliced crosswise
  • ½ pint blueberries
  • 2 peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  1. In a 9-by-13-inch baking pan, pour a very thin layer (about 1/8 inch thick) of lemonade. Add whole basil leaves, laying them flat, and sprinkle chopped basil evenly over pan.
  2. Place pan on a level surface in the freezer, double-checking that basil leaves are evenly distributed. Freeze until solid, about 3 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, mix together watermelon, kiwi, blueberries, and peaches and divide among six bowls. Remove tray from freezer and, using a knife, gently pry ice sheet up, breaking it into shards. Place basil ice chips vertically in each fruit bowl and serve immediately.
