I made this for the first time to take to a friend who had a baby and I am sure glad it made enough for me to keep some! The sauce is SO yummy! I am thinking I may add strawberries or blueberries when they are in season.

Our whole family loves this fruit salad. Vary the fruits to suit your taste. I agree with the other reviewers who said to wait to add bananas until just prior to serving. A very similar Taste of Home recipe is "Brunch Fruit Salad" which is also delicious.

Made this as written. Very good!! Added all the fruit to the sauce and served it the next day, we had leftovers the next day and none of the fruit had browned. Next time I may half some cherries for extra color.

Delish and easy. I made it the day before but added the bananas shortly before serving. This will be a go-to keeper.

Great salad! Makes a large quantity; sauce is really good. I did wait to add the apples and bananas shortly before serving, but the leftovers did not turn brown quickly, maybe due to the juices in the sauce. I added fresh fruit to the leftovers to make it go further since there was plenty of sauce.

Stir Lemon juice into the fruit. It will keep the apples and bananas from turning brown! This is YUMMY!

This was quite good. I have made it twice now, and I learned two things. One, there was way too much sauce in my opinion, so I cut that part of the recipe in half. Much better. Two, don't cut in the apples and bananas until you're ready to serve it. Not terrible, but a lot better (and better looking) to wait. Other than those two things this was delicious and an excellent fruit dish to make in the winter time.
