Sour cream or crema mexicana Sweetened condensed milk Pineapple reserve juice and pineapple fruit Apples Chopped pecans Shredded coconut Raisins Maraschino cherries drained
In a medium-sized bowl, add the sour cream (or crema mexicana) and the pineapple juice from the can.
Sweetened condensed milk adds a lot of sweetness. If you like your Ensalada Navideña to be more sugary, by all means add the entire container.
With a whisk, blend until smooth and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
The main ingredient: Apples! For this recipe, I used Gala apples because they were on sale. Chop and dice.
In a large container or bowl, add the diced apples, pecans, coconut, and raisins. Add everything to a large bowl.
Add the cream dressing to the fruit and mix thoroughly to combine.
Top with Maraschino cherries, be sure to add plenty of cherries. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
