Any fruit can be used, but this is my favorite combination. Try your own creation, but if you wish to use oranges and grapes in the same recipes, DON'T add the oranges until ready to serve or the grapes will be extremely bitter.

This fruit salad is delicious. I ate it all myself in a few days. The dressing is great and doesn't need any additional sugar. I made use less banana next time because it has such a strong flavor. Read More

Very disappointed considering how high this salad rates with others. Needs to be sweeter so definitely add some honey. Also I like very hot things but the cayenne although a small amount needs to really be cut down or left out altogether. Your mouth shouldn't be burning after eating a fruit salad. The dressing was a pretty color and maybe just allow people to people put it on the fruit if they desire. Otherwise too many flavors going on here. I have a big bowl of unappealing fruit now that no one will touch. Will not make again. Read More

After searching among many fruit salad recipes I decided to make this one for a picnic. Everyone thought it was delicious! It was hard to find a recipe with no added refined sugar or fat. The only change I made was to the dressing after putting it in the food processor. I strained it to remove the raspberry seeds. Excellent and will make again and again! Read More

This was delicious - and got rave reviews from my Dad who is a true gourmet. If anything I would watch the amount of dressing or better yet add some more fruit! Went well with the saltier seasame chicken and fried rice I served! Read More

This is different I thought it needed some additional sweetness. Next time I will add some sugar or 1/4 cup of maple syrup. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I thought this was absolutely excellent. Blackberries also work well if you don't have raspberries. Also I do recommend adding about 1/2 cup sugar or so to the sauce mix. I will definitely keep this recipe! Read More

I love how the dressing is made of fruit itself and how versatile it is you can use whatever fruit is handy. But I don't like the cayenne pepper! I thought it sounded strange but I used it anyways. It turns out I don't like it. I like spicy food but I don't like spicy fruit! I might make this again but without the cayenne. Read More
