Home Cooked : Macaroni Fruit Salad

Well, other than my fried rice from my previous post; I also made hubby Macaroni Fruit Salad.

The ingredients:

A can of Fruit Cocktails
A pack of Nata De Coco
A bowl of Macaroni
Mayonnaise
(all ingredient amount is up to your liking)

A pot of water to boil the macaroni to cook.

Add a teaspoon or two of salt into the water for taste, (also to let the water boil up faster saving us time to wait for it :D) then pour the macaroni into the boiling water. Boil macaroni for 10-15mins or when you think it is right for your liking. Some people prefer it still slightly hard, some prefer it softer, some prefer it slightly harder like myself :).

While the macaroni are cooking in the pot, drain the syrup out of the fruit cocktail and the nata de coco, this is to make sure the salad won’t end up too sweet (leaving some of the syrup is your choice for taste). Pour the fruits and nata de coco out of the packaging into a plastic container / ice cream tub.


After the macaroni are cooked, put it together with the fruits and nata de coco. Add in the amount of mayonnaise to your liking. I put in about 4-5 tablespoons of mayo for that portion I made. I am a mayonnaise lover :P.

Mix them well.


Keep it in the refrigerator to chill and serve cold. Did this make you drool? :P If it didn't I am sure the next post will! Yes it is about food! But it is Japanese food :). Yet another 3-days weekend for me and you (those who are having a holiday). Hope you have a great weekend!

That's a really simple recipe and easy to make. I like making things using ingredients that I already have in the house. I love nata coco! I use them in most of my fruit salads. Thanks for the post!

I have always associated macaroni with savoury sauce. In a fruit salad is something new. You're innovative!

Mariuca said...

Looks nice and tasty. I love the chewy testure of nata de coco!

ladyviral said...

Pete : would you try it at home too? ^_^

Ayie said...

I don't usually combine those 2 for salad...i prefer fruits salad to be sweet like dessert and macarioni to be traditional with mayo and meats or whatever tasty stuffs I can put.

Ayie said...

hubby must be so happy you've been cooking!

ladyviral said...

Ayie : Well, there is always a first to everything... why not try it? :P.

Oh yes hubs was happy! But I am not letting him think I will be cooking soon again haha!

Ayie said...

I've eaten some macaroni fruit salads like this but I prefer fruits to be for dessert =P

levian said...
