In a small saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil and cook for one minute or until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in the lime juice. Transfer syrup to a glass bowl and place in the freezer to rapidly cool for about 5 minutes.
Add sliced strawberries and kiwis to a large mixing bowl and toss gently to combine.
Pour cooled syrup over fruit, toss in torn basil leaves and chill for 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
One Last Thing
Really, you can use any kind of fruit you like. Prefer to channel a woodsy escape? The salad is especially nice with mixed berries!
