A great summertime salad because you can take advantage of the many seasonal fruits available. In winter, canned and frozen can be substituted. A veritable explosion of fruits with a hint of licorice.

Combine water, sugar, lemon juice and aniseed in a saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, uncovered, for 40 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened and reduced by one-third (about 1-1/2 cups). Remove from heat. Cover and cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine honeydew, pineapple, cantaloupe, grapes and oranges in a large bowl. Pour aniseed mixture over the fruit; toss to coat.
Cover and chill at least 1 hour. Just before serving, add strawberries and banana; gently toss. Garnish with kiwi.
