This is a Filipino dessert, usually served at BBQs. Buco is coconut in Tagalog. The original recipe is found here and this is the adapted version of it. This is a very forgiving recipe, so need not be too particular about the measurement.

Buco Salad
Ingredients
4 Coconuts, hacked open and scrape flesh
1 can 850g Fruit Cocktail, drained
1 Packet 1 kg Nata de Coco in light syrup, drained (I bought Strawberry Flavour for its pink colour)
1 Cup Whipping Cream
3 Tbsp Condensed Milk
1/8 Tsp Rose Essence

Method
Toss everything together in a large bowl.

Simple? grin

Notes :
1. Do not scrape too deep into the coconut flesh or you will get pieces of husk attached.

2. Do not use Tropical Fruit Cocktail as there is too much soft papaya.

3. Buco salad should be served cold. Best prepared the night before and freeze. Thaw before serving. Alternatively, make it a few hours before the party and freeze it.

4. Would advise to use chunkier Nata de Coco for better texture, suggested amount is 3 cans. I couldn't find them in cans so I used those that are in bite-size and swimming in light syrup. I forgot to weigh the Nata de Coco after draining.

This is a scrapper my helper has devised. You can see the actual one in the bloglink provided.

at IMM. but it was sometime ago. Picture...can..later. going out for classes today. Smile

actually, it looks like the one I am selling too. Except mine was made in Germany. While Daiso's ones are Made in Japan, i think.

the Daiso one has a plastic handle. the one I am selling is stainless steel all the way. it has dual purpose, to shred coconut and to grate citrus fruit zest.

scroll all the way down and you will see the one I have for sale.
the center portion scraps coconut, the top grates.
