Tips and Procedures:
- Always strain the liquids of the fruit salad ingredients like the liquids in the fruit cocktail and nata de coco. If you include the liquid in the fruit salad, it would make your salad soggy and so liquidy.
- Refrigerate immediately after mixing all the ingredients. It would tend to turn bad quickly because of the cream and milk if it is exposed to warm room temperature.
