Once the holiday lights and décor are taken down, and stored in their boxes, the spirit of Christmas need not fade away until next December—or in the case of Pinoys, once the “ber” months set in.
Dishes that we associate with the good times that the Yuletide season is a great (and tasty) way to keep Christmas alive all year round.
Aside from Noche Buena staples like crispy and tasty lechon, glazed Chinese ham, and a huge bilao of pancit or spaghetti, a refreshing bowl of chilled fruit salad is another staple in any Filipino family’s Christmas buffet, and there’s no better way to enjoy this then during the polar opposite of the cool Holiday Season—summer.
For each family, there are variations for this classic fruity dish. Some add mandarin oranges aside from regular fruit cocktails. Others include raisins to the mix or some of those colorful beans also used in halo-halo. While there are a few who spike things a bit with a dash of alcohol. But this cool and colorful dessert can have another delicious spin to it by simply adding Lady’s Choice REAL Mayonnaise. The slightly savory flavor of the mayonnaise helps cut through the sweetness to give it an equally balanced flavor. The mayonnaise also adds a touch of silky smoothness and creaminess to this much loved Christmas dish. So the next time you’re overcome with nostalgia for the warm fuzzy feeling of Christmas, try making yourself a bowl of delicious fruit salad made with Lady’s Choice Mayonnaise.
