Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Can I use peanuts or sunflower seeds in this recipe in place of the pecans? We have an allergy in our house to tree nuts, so we have to substitute or omit the nuts. I was worried that this used canned fruit salad. We can't have pears, but this recipe uses all fresh fruit. I love using fresh fruit for desserts.

This sounds good except it has waaaaay too much sugar in it....
