I cut this out of the News & Observer here in Raleigh last spring. Since it uses fresh apples and bananas it a nice way to dress up canned fruit. I have also added grapes, just to add some color. My family really likes this fruit salad.

Very delicious! It held up nicely--we enjoyed it with bran muffins for breakfast, took some on a picnic, and had some as a side for a light supper. My sister was visiting and she enjoyed it as well. Thanks for posting!

This easy fruit compote was a nice addition to our weekend breakfast. Will make again. Thanks Kay in NC. Bullwinkle.
