Ancient Family Secret Recipe...Shhhhhh!
My dad makes fruit salad for every holiday dinner. Actually, almost every Filipino family has a similar fruit salad on the buffet at most parties. What's in it? Well, there are many versions. Some people add sweetened condensed milk, others add cream cheese, it all depends on the salad maker.
Well, my dad makes the best version and it's delicious every time.
