(Buko is young coconut)
My friend, Lisa made this fruit salad for her dinner party
last weekend and she sent with me a big bowl of it
so now I have pictures to post here.
I didn't bother to ask her how she made it because
I was pretty sure she made it the same way I do.
It's really good! Thank you, Lisa!!
Here's my favorite fruit combination:
2 cans (15.25 oz. ea.) Fruit Cocktail, well drained
1 bottle Nata de Coco, well drained*
I can Buko, well drained (young coconut)**
Fresh green grapes
Fresh peaches, cubed
(ripe Manila mangoes instead of peaches would be great if available)
For the Fruit Dressing:
Mix 1 can of condensed milk and 1 can of Nestle Cream
then lightly stir in with the fruit.
Chill for several hours before serving.
Here's my husband's favorite Fruit Medley:
Mix and match:
Fresh red and green grapes
or mix and match any fresh fruits available or in season.
Topped with freshly-whipped cream (heavy cream + sugar)
Another option for Fruit Dressing for fresh fruits:
2 cups fresh orange juice + 2 Tbsps. cornstarch.
Cook until thick enough to pour over fruits.
Notes from MaMely:
*Nata de Coco are available in red, green colors and natural.
**Of course if you're in the Philippines or a place where Buko or young coconuts are available, you don't need to use the canned ones.
