Very Vanilla Fruit Salad





I'm always in search of unique twists on classic sides and I had originally planned on bringing this fruit salad to a family party that we went to yesterday but I was hesitant about bringing a new recipe that I hadn't even tried before. What I decided to do was make two batches of fruit salad so that I could test out the recipe today. I made it for breakfast this morning for myself and my little guy and we both loved it! The vanilla/ sugar combo worked well with the fruit and while it added some extra sweetness to the fruit, it wasn't too sweet. Now I know I can bring it to my next picnic or party!
