Fruit Salad a common Filipino Desert

Updated on May 8, 2015

Try it!


This dish or what I considered as dessert called "Fruit Salad" was generally mixed of various kinds of fruits with condesed milk and all purpose cream. It was very simple to prepare and not that much to do so, It maybe very common to others but for me it was my number one food that I enjoyed mostly in summer. Well, typically it was always served to any buffet meals in my Country because many Filipinos love this dessert. Still I love it and want to share how this simple salad can make my day bright.

      This looks delicious, I've had something a little similar at a nearby restaurant (with the cream added to the fruit) and I really liked it, will have to give it a try!

      @Charito1962: Really, I'm slightly envious you have "kasambahay" who made a great salad like this. But then again I'm happy we both love fruit salad. Thanks.

      Good idea for when fresh fruit is expensive or not in peak condition.
