Mixed Fruit Salad in Minty Sauce

This salad is inspired by dessert that we once had at friend’s  wedding party in Jamaica… It was made of fresh tropical fruits in condensed milk dressing.

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 200 g) sweetened condensed milk
  • small handful of fresh mint leaves (chopped finely)


melon baller


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

Makes 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.

For healthier version of this salad take a look at my daughter’s Melon Bowl Fruit Salad in Yogurt Dressing.

  2. Love it. It brings back memories of home in Nigeria when we always had fruit salad with evapourated/condensed milk, without the herbs…..yummy!

  3. What a welcoming sight for mid-February in Minnesota (read: snow,cold, ice) All that goodly fruit swirled in a creamy sauce. Delicious.

  4. A lovely refreshing salad this is!

  5. I agree with Claudia, I’m in chicago and all i want is summer fresh berries!
