A traditional Filipino fruit salad contains a mix of seasonal fresh fruits. Sliced pineapples, mangoes and bananas keep with a tropical theme, but apples, grapes and strawberries also commonly get added. When fresh fruit is not an option, canned or frozen fruits work too. While recipes for Filipino fruit salad vary, one thing remains constant: the creamy dressing.
Things You'll Need
- Large bowls
- Wooden spoon
- Heavy cream
- Plastic wrap
Put sliced fruit in a large bowl. Mix it with a wooden spoon.
Stir in equal parts of condensed milk and heavy cream, enough to coat each piece of fruit with the dressing.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator to chill overnight.
Cream Cheese Fruit Salad
Combine equal parts of softened cream cheese and heavy cream in a large bowl. Stir it with a wooden spoon into a smooth, creamy dressing. Increase the amount of heavy cream for a looser consistency.
Place sliced fruit in another large pour. Pour the cream cheese dressing over the fruit, tossing to coat all pieces evenly.
Cover the Filipino fruit salad with a piece of plastic wrap and chill it overnight in the refrigerator.
