Cooking Filipino style fruit salad

1. Mixi heavy cream and cream cheese together to a smooth sauce like consistency.
2. Combine with other ingredients and blend well, chill overnight.
3. Lychees can be skipped, use tropical fruit cocktail instead of the regular fruit cocktail, make it four cans.
4. I happen to omit the almonds too. Filipinos use something called nestles cream, but it" s not easy to find.
5. Filipino style fruit salad:.


I had this salad at a Filipino friend\'s home, but she used another ingredient, I cannot for the life of me remember its name. She carefully recited the ingredients at the time so I dont want to offend her by asking again. Its some kind of pineapple nut?? It looked like a small grape but firmer with a bland taste, but gave the salad a really nice texture. Definitely a nut of some kind, but fleshy, almost like a raw almond. Anyone know it?


Hi Julie, the \"nuts\" are called Kaong (pronounced kuh-ong). You can find it at the Filipino/oriental stores, in glass jars or canned. This reminds me of my childhood. It\'s well worth the effort to use fresh, halved grapes, too. They have a better texture than those found in the fruit cocktail.
