    I had run out of bananas and didn't have the seasonal fruits, so i replaced them with apples, oranges, and pineapple chunks, and it was still great. I loved the sauce, but wished it was a bit thicker. I will make this again. - 11/18/08

    This was really good. You can use just about any fruit in this salad. I didn't have blueberries so I added cherries and 2 different kinds of grapes. I think pineapple would also be good. I'm trying that next time. I also didn't use the ginger or nutmeg as I didn't have it but it tasted just as good. - 6/10/08

  • I always have a bowl of fresh fruit prepped and ready in my refrigerator, and that Honey Orange Sauce sounded TOO TOO good not to try--so I now have a new "go to" sauce which has quickly become one of my favorites.

  • Made with cinnamon instead of ginger for personal preference.

    Honey is a natural form of sugar and enzymes made by bees, ants and aphids. We eat that made by bees. If you remove the sugar it's not honey anymore. There's no such thing as "sugar free honey". - 1/25/11
