The Best Glazed Fruit Salad! Recipe @pinch

A delightful and refreshing fruit salad that tastes like summer. Thick and sweet, the glaze has citrus undertones. Lemon adds a touch of tanginess and balances out the sweetness. It is a wonderful base for a fruit salad using your favorite fruit. We added strawberries, but any melon, berry, or seasonal fruit can be included. I found this recipe in a 1950s magazine. I tweaked it by adding orange marmalade, but you can use whatever preserves you like!
