In a batter bowl, whisk together the sugar, salt, and cornstarch. Whisk in water. Microwave on high 2 minutes. Whisk well. Microwave another 2 minutes and whisk well. Microwave another 2-3 minutes, and whisk well until thickened. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl, and add a little of the hot thickened mixture to them. Carefully whisk the warmed eggs into the hot mixture. Add the lemon juice, lime juice, and zest. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Whisk in vanilla. Allow to cool, covered. Gently stir in the fruits and serve in clear glass dishes, garnished with whipped cream or just mint leaves.
