This is my brother's favorite salad that Mom would make! You can use any combination of fruit the sky's the limit!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a really simple fruit salad spotlighting more citrusy flavors. The sauce is really thin and the perfect balance of sweetness with a touch of savoriness. Even though it is really thin, it still coats the fruit and leaves a nice flavor. We loved the combination of fruits - not one fruit overpowers another. The sauce does pool at the bottom of the bowl so make sure to give it a good stir before serving. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
