Mixed Fruit Salad in Minty Sauce

Posted on: 27th Feb 2010

fruits in condensed milk sauce


  • 4 cups of mixed fruits such as cantaloupe or honeydew melon balls, blueberries or black grapes, strawberries and apples
  • ⅓ cup (about 200g) sweetened condensed milk
  • small handful of fresh mint leaves (chopped finely)


  • To make sauce combine chopped mint with condensed milk.
  • Share fruits to the bowls, sprinkle with minty sauce and enjoy.

Make 4 servings.


You can also use basil leaves instead of mint, it tastes especially good with melon, blueberries and strawberries.
For this salad I used ½ honeydew melon (balls), about 7 large strawberries (quartered), 1 green Granny Smith apple (cubed) and two handfuls of black grapes.
