"Do not add the bananas until just prior to serving. Very similar recipe to Taste of Home's Four-Fruit Compote. Both are really good!!"

"I make fruit salad a lot for holidays, showers, and get-togethers. This one is a favorite for me because it uses some canned ingredients to make it quick and easy, but some fresh as well to make it taste great! The syrup is sweet and delicious. Definitely a make-again recipe!"

"Simple and delicious fruit salad...easy to do for a crowd since there isn't much cutting. I doubled the fruit, but made the sauce using the measurements listed. If I had doubled the sauce recipe, it would have been swimming in liquid...not like the picture."

"Perfect. The only thing I would do different would be to put the bananas in the bottom, then stir before serving. The bananas stayed good overnight as long as they were completely covered."
