I like to serve this in cataloupe halves.

This is one serious fruit salad! It's not something I would make for an everyday fruit salad only because the "sauce" is so sweet and seems to take over the melon and other fruits. It's more of a "dessert" fruit salad. I definately would make this to take to a picnic or gathering though. All in all, very good. (Oh, and I did add blueberries, my only deviation from original recipe). Made for Comfort Cafe Summer 09.
