This is a pretty simple tip that my mom passed along to me. She picked it up from the cashier at her local grocery store.
Condensed milk makes a pretty darn good fruit salad dressing.
Growing up, Mom made a homemade fruit salad dressing that involved cooking a dressing up with multiple ingredients, letting it cool, etc. Well, it turns out that a little condensed milk tossed with your fruit tastes just as good.
Last year, I made a very simple fruit salad with canned tropical fruit, a freshly chopped apple and some grapes. I let it chill overnight in the fridge then took it to work for a breakfast meeting. My co-workers loved it and couldn't believe how easy it was.
Just make sure you use condensed milk NOT evaporated.
