This fruit salad is amazing, and there is NO ADDED sugar to the syrup because it's made with 100% pure apple juice. The colors of the strawberries, blueberries and mangoes together are absolutely beautiful. This is now my new signature "summer" dish that people ask me to bring to picnics and cook outs. I found this in Vegetarian times. It was mentioned that the vanilla apple syrup alone can be used as a sweetener for plain yogurt, iced tea or cocktails, in place of simple syrup made with sugar.
