WHENEVER we Filipinos celebrate a special occasion, we always have a delightful salad to go with all the heavy stuff—and when it is Christmas, it definitely has to be either a Fruit Salad, Buko Salad, or Buko Pandan Salad. We either make the salad or buy a really good one.
Well, for this Christmas, we really have a good option in Chef Edward David Mateo’s Buko Pandan Salad, which comes in a 2-kg. tub and is exclusively available at S&R stores nationwide under its Members’ Value brand. Formulated by Chef Edward with Frozen Spoon business partner Chef Kelvin Paul Sy, this Buko Pandan is made using natural ingredients, such as pandan leaves sourced from Mindoro, fresh buko from Laguna which comes in cubes and chunks, and natural agar-agar processed in Taguig. It contains no artificial flavoring or coloring, and the sweetness is just right. Not too sweet—even as it presents a perfect interplay of textures and flavors on the palate.
Sold in frozen form for Php799 per 2-kg. tub, Buko Pandan is value for money and goes perfectly with any Christmas celebration.
