Fruit Salad is a general term referring to a fruit dessert. This dessert is typically composed of different fruits combined with cream and sweetened milk. This can either be served as an appetizer, a side dish, and as a dessert. 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.
We Filipinos have different taste in salad. most of us make salad using the cocktail fruit that we usually buy in the market but in this recipe we put a little bit of strawberry, blueberries and kiwi to add the yumminess and tasteness of th salad.
How to make fruit salad:
1 can large fruit cocktail
1 cup fresh strawberries cleaned and cut in half lengthwise
1 cup blueberries cleaned
3 pieces kiwi cleaned and sliced into bite size pieces
3/4 cups nata de coco
14 ounces condensed milk
8 ounces table / medium cream or all purpose cream
Drain the juice from the fruit cocktail and transfer the canned fruits in a bowl.
Combine the fruit cocktail, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, and nata de coco then toss lightly.
Add the condensed milk then mix lightly. Be extra careful so that the fruits will remain intact.
Add the table cream / medium cream then mix again. Make sure that the cream is properly distributed amongst the fruits.
