Our grandchildren requested this every time we had family gatherings. Some times replaced apples with grapes as that was their preference

Surprisingly, I made this last week! It was the first time and we loved it. And now I'm going to do the -- but I changed... I used fresh mandarins, not canned. And, I left out the apple and added blood orange so it was more tropical. I also did not add the bananas to the larger bowl of salad but sliced them into the individual serving bowls. They get icky otherwise. Also, word to the wise, if you are not making this for a large group, you may wish to halve the recipe. The dressing breaks down and gets watery so only make as much as you will eat within a few hours. Other than that it is awesome. I have already purchased the necessary ingredients to make it again.

Very tasty and a breeze to make. Like some others, I add darker-colored fruits for splashes of color: red grapes, pitted cherries (not Maraschino--too sweet), raspberries (tanginess adds a lot!!), blueberries. Just use your imagination!!

This is the best, tastiest fruit salad I have ever eaten. Feel free to omit or swap the fruit. It is still delish!

Delicious! I've been making this since I saw it in Taste of Home magazine 15 or 20 years ago. It is by far my most requested dish for a family gatherings and potlucks. It really is just fruit salad with this amazing sauce, so it's different yet still something familiar. I always double the recipe & still come home with an empty bowl.

I honestly don't understand the good reviews on this. Just made it for a family gathering and no one cared for it.
