Fruit Salad

panlasangpinoy's picture
In the Philippines, fruit salad is considered to be more of a dessert rather than an appetizer or side dish. The Filipino version of the fruit salad requires the use of condensed milk and table cream which makes the dish rich and sweet. The typical Filipino fruit salad is composed of canned fruit cocktail combined with condensed milk and table cream. However, there are also some versions wherein buko or young coconut is added (this should not be mistaken as the buko salad wherein young coconut is exclusively used).
  Fruit cocktail 1 Can (10 oz)
  Strawberries 1 Cup (16 tbs), cleaned and cut in half lengthwise
  Blueberries 1 Cup (16 tbs), cleaned
  Kiwi 3 , cleaned and sliced into bite size pieces
  Nata de coco 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Condensed milk 14 Ounce
  Cream/All purpose cream 8 Ounce (Table Or Medium)

1. Drain the juice from the fruit cocktail and transfer the canned fruits in a bowl.

2. Combine the fruit cocktail, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, and nata de coco then toss lightly.

3. Add the condensed milk then mix lightly. Be extra careful so that the fruits will remain intact.

4. Add the table cream / medium cream then mix again. Make sure that the cream is properly distributed amongst the fruits.

5. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

6. Serve Chilled. Share and Enjoy!
