This tasty fruit salad was surprisingly strong on the citrus flavor. It was good, but didn’t taste as good as my favorite, Marshmallow Fruit Salad. Perhaps I miss having the soft bits of marshmallow and it a mouth feel sort of thing.
If I made this again I think I would skip adding oranges to it, since it has both zest and a orange juice in it. Having all three to me was overkill and orange was the only flavor I could taste. I might even skip the zest since it was such a potent flavor. I did sub honey for the maple syrup, I’m not sure that played a huge factor in the taste, but wanted to mention it.
