Christmas Recipe: Buko Pandan Salad

Buko Pandan Salad
is originated from Bohol Province, it is a favorite Filipino salad served in almost every kind of party and special occasions in the Philippines.

Buko Pandan Salad Ingredients:

* 8 leaves of Pandan – (must be cleaned well)
* 5 Buko (Coconut)not too hard, not too soft- Grated to strips
* Water approx. 10 cups
* 3 small cans of Nestle Cream
* 1 medium can of Condensed Milk
* 2 bars of Green Gulaman
* 1 3/4 Cups Sugar (more if you want it sweeter)
* 1 cup Kaong (optional)

Buko Pandan Salad Preparation Instructions:

* Boil water together with 8 pandan leaves that are individually twisted to break the fibers and expose the juice. Simmer for 20 minutes.
* Before adding 2 bars of gulaman, make sure you remove the pandan leaves and check if the remaining water is equal to 8 cups – 1 bar of gulaman is good for 4 cups of liquid. If it is not 8 cups, less will mean hard gulaman and more than 8 cups will result in mushy soft gulaman.
* Ensuring gulaman is well-dissolved stir well.
* Add sugar while mixing. Do this for 5 minutes.
* Pour through a strainer into cooling trays. Wait till it cools and hardens, then put in fridge.
* Meanwhile, mix the grated buko with the 3 cans of cream and 1 can of condensed milk.
* Add kaong if you prefer.
* Get gulaman from ref and cut into 1 cm cubes.
* Mix with buko mixture.
