I made this recipe for an Eagles club family night. They wanted a "salad" and I wanted to bring something different than the typical macaroni or jello type salad. I made this recipe and it was a HIT! I had so many people asking for the recipe for it. I agree with a previous reviewer, in that the sauce is too runny to layer over the top. I just mixed it all together. I also substituted canned mandarin oranges for the oranges in the recipe, and walnuts instead of hazelnuts. Also, I live in a small town and was unable to find "vanilla sugar". In fact, I've never even heard of it. So, to compensate, I added 1 more T of powdered sugar and then a T. of vanilla extract. An excellent recipe! I can see making this over and over again. My 2 year old neice refused to eat anything else once she tasted this salad. ;)

Delicious! I used sliced almonds instead of hazelnuts and used a larger variety of fruits (nectarines, grapes, strawberries, apples, pears, plums, etc.) The sauce is more watery than creamy, so I used it as a dressing and mixed it in the fruit rather than coating it on top. Everyone loved it!

Very good. I substituted oatmeal for the nuts to work around a nut allergy. Worked very well, but we had lots of extra topping. (tastes good on ice cream). Will make again often.
