Summer Fruit Salad

Perfect Summer Fruit Salad

Recipe By:Nicole Graham Holley
"The perfect fruit salad for a backyard bbq or any occasion. There are never leftovers! This is one of my favorite fruit salad recipes, as I think the sauce really makes it. This salad is tastier the longer you can let it soak in its juices. I prefer 3 to 4 hours in the refrigerator before I serve it. Enjoy."

 2/3 cup fresh orange juice
 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 2 cups cubed fresh pineapple
 2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
 3 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced
 3 bananas, sliced
 2 oranges, peeled and sectioned
 1 cup seedless grapes
 2 cups blueberries


 Bring orange juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, orange zest, and lemon zest to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla extract. Set aside to cool.
 Layer the fruit in a large, clear glass bowl in this order: pineapple, strawberries, kiwi fruit, bananas, oranges, grapes, and blueberries. Pour the cooled sauce over the fruit. Cover and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours before serving.
