Simple, delicious, and with the July 4th holiday just around the corner this would be a great pound cake or short cake topper, not to mention vanilla ice cream! I cut the recipe in half and used Splenda instead of sugar. Great after dinner treat!

Did NOT work well with frozen fruit. I guess I knew that, but blueberries aren't in season here.

We all enjoyed this fruit salad very much. I didn't add much sugar, just a couple tablespoons over the strawberries after I'd cut them, then I folded in the blueberries and bananas. At the last, I sprinkled in FRESH lemon juice. I think adding a full half cup of sugar would do a disservice to the natural sweetness of the fruit.

Beautiful, delicious and seasonally appropriate since strawberries and blueberries are plentiful and reasonably priced now. I liked the addition of the bananas, which provided a creamy contrast in texture as well as its role in the "red, white and blue." I skipped the sugar entirely and just gave it a drizzle of honey. This was a perfect and fresh addtion to our Memorial Day Breakfast.

This went over very well at our holiday party tonight. We had another family over, and the fruit was a hit with adults and kids alike. My husband is not wild about blueberries, but even liked them in this, and said the bananas were "divine" with the "sauce." Next time he wants me to make it with cherries instead of blueberries.

Pineapple works great in place of the bananas. Cut back on sugar too.
