Buko Salad is the Filipino version of fruit salad, and it's made with young coconut, fruit cocktail, and condensed milk. It is one of my favourite all-time desserts, and around Christmas you can find it everywhere in the Phillipines. Super-easy and quick to make, you can have it ready and on the table within half an hour! Try it out and let me know in the comments what you think! Bon appetit!
