I found this recipe in a 1950s reminisce magazine. I tweaked it by adding orange marmalade, it called for apricot preserves but you can use whatever preserves you like!!

What a delightful fruit salad! The orange marmalade glaze is sweet but has a little bit of tang from the lemon. This was great at room temperature, but even better after it sat in the fridge for a few hours and the flavors blended together. I had some extra strawberries so I threw them in too. So yummy!

How to Make The BEST Glazed Fruit Salad!

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain pineapple, reserve all juice.
  2. In a small bowl, combine all your fruit. I always squirt some lemon juice over my bananas before adding so they don't get brown and yucky looking. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and reserved pineapple juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer till thickened. Remove from heat and add the marmalade or preserves and the lemon juice.
  4. Let cool for a couple of minutes, then pour the glaze over your fruit and toss gently to coat. Keep in the fridge. It won't last long!!
