Total Time:


2/3 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups cubed fresh pineapples
2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
3 kiwi fruits, peeled and sliced
3 bananas, sliced
2 oranges, peeled and sectioned
1 cup seedless grape
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. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours before serving.
