Buko Pandan Salad with Pandan Ice Cream. One Pinoy sweet salad dessert is the classic Buko Pandan Salad. The recipe goes back to our grandparents where the only source of gulaman gelatine come from Agar Agar bars. Agar Agar is gelling agent from a kind of seaweed. Today we now have the options of the Agar Agar in easy to use powder form.

The recipe may not be that perfect compared other Buko Pandan recipes that have are no available in the web. But that recipe was one of the more popular post during that time.
Today I want to share a level up version of the classic Buko Pandan Salad. Buko Pandan Salad with Pandan Ice Cream. The dessert is brought to the next level by the pandan ice cream topping. This level up version recipe is also dead simple, it only requires minimal ingredients that are already available in most supermarkets. Off course the buko need to be bought from a buko peddler.
The only hard part is the making of the pandan gulaman where it involves boiling the gulaman solution and letting it set to gelatine and ultimately cutting in to cubes.
