 Buko Fruit Salad
There are many Filipino words relating to coconut, each describing a particular variety or stage of development. Buko is the generic term, and refers to the nut when it is young but ready to eat. The young coconut needed for the salad should be thick but still tender, or malakanin (six- to seven-month green coconut).

 Chicken Potato Salad
Chicken potato salad is a luscious main dish or side dish that's perfect for any Filipino occasion – fiestas, birthdays, Christmas, and New Year. Much more to this, it can also be included in your picnic recipe during Family day. With its distinctive flavor and aroma of chicken and potato, it will bring delight for the whole family.

 Ensaladang Labong
To this day, whenever I return to our childhood home in Tarlac, my sister Isabel still prepares labong the way Mom did when we were kids. Labong are bamboo shoots and are abundant all over the Philippines. There are many ways bamboo shoots are used as an ingredient in different provinces, from sautéing in Ilocos to cooking in coconut milk in the Visayas. In our home, Mom often cooked labong with shrimps and saluyot, a leafy vegetable, for lunch. Perhaps my favorite dish was Mom’s Labong Salad—crunchy, slim strips with pork and shrimp in a tangy, sweet vinaigrette. Every time I make this warm salad in my own kitchen, I am immediately transported back to our home in Tarlac and Mom’s cooking. 

 Ensaladang Talong (Eggplant Salad) With Coconut Vinaigrette
The traditional way of preparing eggplant salad is to broil or roast the eggplant, peel it, mash or slice it into pieces, and dress it with Filipino vinaigrette.

 Fruit Salad With A Twist
So what does it take to make this fruit salad with a twist?

 Fruity Chicken Salad
Chicken, fruits and pasta come together in this flavorful salad with a little twist from the traditional Filipino Chicken salad - perfect for the Holiday season.

 Macaroni Chicken Salad With Pineapple
Macaroni Chicken Salad with Pineapple is a fast, easy cold salad for summer or warmer days. This is a favorite Filipino holiday staple because hosts can extend this side dish or appetizer with more pasta. Filipinos love sweets in dishes, so one finds layers of sweetness from pineapple, raisins, the mayonnaise dressing, and the relish. I tried to recreate the original version of my aunt's macaroni salad, but hers will always be the best in my opinion.

 Mango/grapefruit Salad For All Seasons
On our UP Area 1 e-group, ages ago, we had been exchanging recipes.  Bong Daza vaguely cited a salad of grapefruit and mango which he tossed together with a bagoong dressing.  I was fearful that the bagoong's perfume would not go well with my Western guests' palates, so I kept the grapefruit/mango combination and added my own touches of taste and color with the red onion, pomegranate grains, chives and above all the kaffir lime leaves.

 Peanut-Sesame Pasta Salad
Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer here in America. Our outdoor grills will be busy once again while we cook our favorite barbecues all summer long. This easy Peanut-Sesame Pasta Noodle Salad is one of my family's favorites to pair with the pork or chicken Filipino barbecues I often make. In fact, the nutty and sweet flavors of this chilled, hearty salad make it an ideal pairing with any type of entree. Or if you want, enjoy it as a meal. This recipe was inspired from the Kitchen Play site. Serves 2.

 Pomelo Salad
Davao City is known to be the ‘fruit basket of the Philippines’ and does not only take pride in its famous durian. Buongon or pomelo is now a big hit among Davaoeños and visitors of the city.   

 Simple And Easy Fruit Salad
From Christmas, birthdays to fiestas, this dessert is one of the most requested dishes especially for those who have the sweet tooth.

 Talbos Ng Sayote Salad
One of the dishes that the Bagobo-Tagabawa Tribe prepared for us on a trip to their Tibolo Cultural Village is the Talbos ng Sayote Salad (Chayote, Christophine Tops). 

 Watermelon-Tomato-Cucumber Salad
This Watermelon-Tomato-Cucumber Salad sprinkled with the sharpness of savory feta cheese is one of the most enjoyable summer salads I serve my family. The sugary sweetness of the watermelon goes well with the fresh, succulent ripe tomatoes and crisp cucumber slices. I whipped together a mirin-honey dressing which I added at the table side, just a few minutes before we started dinner. With or without summer, this is the kind of salad that stays on our minds and on our table all year long.
