“I love fruits, especially melons and this recipe is a keeper. I got the recipe originally from an old community cookbook that was published in the late 80s, that my mother sent me. Thanks mom. *Please note* the chilling time is not included in cooking time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add all the prepared melons to a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle sherry over the melons and chill in the fridge, covered until ready to use. The melons taste better the longer they are chilled.
  3. Now we make the Fruit Dressing, it is a slightly sweet and sour dressing and it compliments most fruits.
  4. In a medium pan, beat together the sugar and egg. Add all the remaining ingredients except for the whipped cream.
  5. Cook, stirring constantly until it thickens slightly. Cool and chill.
  6. When ready to serve, whip the cream and fold into the mixture.
  7. Top your fruit salad with the dressing and garnish with the mint sprigs.
