Buko Salad Recipe

You will need:

  • 1 large can fruit cocktail
  • 1 cup nata de coco
  • 2 cups buko (coconut meat), shredded
  • 2 packs all-purpose cream
  • 1 medium can condensed milk

How to prepare:

Mix everything in a large bowl. Cover. Chill in the fridge. Serve.

Pro tips:

  • There are a few types of coconut meat that varies in texture. Tell your coconut vendor that you want the type of coconut meat that is chewy (malakanin) — neither runny (malauhog, excuse me) nor dry (like niyog). Ask the guy to shred them for you. Keep the coconut juice. You may drink it later at home.
  • Remove the buko, nata de coco, and one pack of creamer and you got yourself a Filipino Fruit Salad!
