1 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. cornstarch
2 cans - 5 1/2 oz. each apricot nectar
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine the prepared apples, bananas, pineapple, strawberries and the green grapes.
Drizzle the apricot dressing over top of the fruit, and toss gently to coat.
Cover and refrigerate until serving.
