Made this yummy yummy salad today for Mother's Day competition in my son's school. This salad was surely a crowd pleaser especially with the kids in the school. Served them in ice cream cones and small sweet biscuits and woooosh it vanished within minutes,. Just a innovative touch to our regular fruit custard. Did not pour the dressing on top coz I served in individual cups and for easy to eat.

You need:
Milk 1litre+1cup
Custard powder 4dessert spoon
Sugar 1/2cup
Condensed milk 1/2 tin+2tbsp
Assorted melons scooped with melon scooper
Black and green grapes
Strawberries chopped. 1cup
Mint leaves
Vanilla cup cakes
Ice cream cones
Sweet biscuits


Boil the milk and add sugar meanwhile mix the custard powder with 1cup milk . When the milk boils reduce heat and pour in the custard mixture and mix well. Stir them continuously till they become thick and glossy.
Cool and refrigerate until set.
The next day blend the set custard with 1/2 tin condensed milk. Now the custard would be smooth like silk. Mix in the strawberries
Prepare all the fruits. Crumble the cake
Just before serving, assemble them in the icecream cone, cake at the bottom, then fill with custard, top with fruits and place a mint, drizzle condensed milk
For the sweet biscuits fill them with custard and place a piece of fruit , drizzle condensed milk
Serve immediately


very healthy salad,looks soo cute!!
