Fruit Salad with a Twist

I know this sounds like a lame recipe to blog about, I mean everyone knows how to make fruit salad but there is one special ingredient that brings out the flavour of fresh fruit (especially stone fruits and berries). It's Orange Flower Water. It sounds lame but it really does enhance the flavour through scent. It's about $12 a bottle which sounds expensive but you don't use much and it lasts for a long time in the pantry. You can buy it from health food stores. Inspired by Nigella Lawson's Peaches & Blueberries recipe.
