Filipino Fruit Salad

{{totalReview}}
Thought to be the result of Americanization in the Philippines, the Filipino Fruit Salad mixes fruits native to the Philippines and a sweet dressing made of condensed milk - an inherently Western concept - into one creamy dessert. While cheese seems to be an odd addition to this dessert, its saltiness surprisingly elevates the taste by balancing out the sweetness of the fruits and the dressing. This fruit salad is a common sight in Filipino households during Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
