"Instead of my usual fresh cut fruit platter for our family picnic this year, I chose to make this beautiful glazed fruit salad.

I did decide to put it with the salads, but was tempted to put it with the desserts.
I changed some of the fruits by adding watermelon and canned mandarin oranges.
After making the glaze, I thought it tasted a bit too orangy so I added a 1/4 teas. of vanilla extract.
I omitted about a 1/2 c. of the glaze. It just seemed like too much.
I let it chill for 24 hrs.
It was perfect. I spent part of the day today forwarding the recipe to family members."

"I made this fruit salad and took to my sister-in-law's as part of their lunch while they were cleaning up after a flood. All 11 of us loved it. I will be serving the rest of it tonight as I entertain my daughter and her 3 children. I like the variety of fruits and the glaze gives it a special taste."

"Yes Yes Yes I will be making this again. So easy and such a nice difference the "glaze" makes. This is no ordinary fruit salad. The hint of vanilla had my guests asking for the recipe. The recipe makes a lot so I used half for a picnic and the other for pot luck at church the next day. My husband pouted when I told him I was taking the rest to church! I used in season fruits so it was economical. You know how much it costs to buy prepared fruit salad at the grocery store. Try it and I know you will agree... This one's a keeper! Thanks TOH"

"This is the awesomest dessert I have had in a long time. I have made it twice in the past two days, both times only making half batches because it really does make alot! BUT.... I realize now that with everyone liking it as well as they do, I could have saved myself some time in making the whole thing. It makes a great breakfast, afternoon treat for the kids, or a light, but filling dessert after supper!"

"Peaches are great added to this recipe. Also, dried bluberries can be substituted for fresh."
