We love the flavors in this salad. It's so easy to prepare and everyone loves it. We've served it at potlucks and are asked for the recipe!

I still have the print issue of this from the 90s. In that version they called for rinsed, canned mandarin oranges not nectarines. The combination of lime juice, water and sugar is amazing! I omit the watermelon personally. Everyone loves this and asks for it often when I am bringing a dish. Nobody ever guesses that the key to the flavor is lime juice. This is the only fruit salad recipe I ever use. But I have to say here in PA it is best made when all of the fruits are starting to actually come in season. And I use red or purple grapes. Green just don't do it for me.

This was very tasty. Next time I will cut back on the lime juice a little. I took this to a party and everyone really enjoyed it! I will definitely be making this again!

Excellent recipe! I have had chef's ask me for this recipe because it is so delicious and the flavor is out of this world. Did I mention it is easy!

I felt the natural flavor of the fruit was masked by the lime. In the future I think I will look for a salad that has a sauce you can serve on the side.

here's another way to prepare it-when I sent in this recipe to TOH magizine years ago, the directions called for it to be layered with the bananas, kiwi and sweet cherries on top as a garnish (the cherries were left off when it was published). the layers look pretty in a tall glass bowl.

Whenever I make this fruit salad I'm asked what's on it. The lime, sugar and water just perk up the fruit. DELICIOUS!

I've been making this for several years now - it is a very good, easy and simple, refreshing salad. I make it the night before except for the bananas, adding them just before seving for a great breakfast go-along. I like the idea of the Margurita mix - I'll try it!
