Rujak and Asinan named the most delicious fruit salad in the world


Jakarta, IO – Indonesian food has once again been recognized for its deliciousness globally. Now, rujak (mixed sliced fruit and vegetables served with spicy palm sugar dressing) and asinan (Betawi-style vegetable salad with peanut sauce) made it to the list of “Top 17 Fruit Salads in the World” according to TasteAtlas, a platform that often reviews culinary and tourism destinations, on Friday (7/6).

Rujak is ranked second, while asinan fifth. They are in the same league as palate-tempting culinary delights from other countries, such as Bionico from Mexico, Frugtsalat from Denmark.

Rujak is served with a sweet and spicy sauce made from a mixture of Javanese sugar, salt, kecombrang (torch ginger) and a little chili. In fact, rujak in some areas uses a mixture of shrimp paste and stone bananas to add richness to the taste. The fruit used is usually papaya, mango, star fruit, pineapple, kedondong (ambarella) and jicama.
