    Well, the 1st time around I usually follow recipes pretty much as written, but this time I detoured a bit ~ With all the sugar & honey I decided to double the amount of fruit, using sliced peaches & pears, as well as blueberries & strawberries, the latter one added just before serving! Also, I didn't add the vanilla in step 1 (as indicated) but added it in step 3 (indicated there as well)! GREAT COMBO OF FLAVORS & definitely a salad I'll be making again!
