Rojak buah tak perlu pengenalan, bak kata Allahyarham P.Ramlee, se-entero Malaysia, kenal dan suka. Baik Melayu, Cina dan India. Boleh dipanggil Salad Buah Malaysia. Ini kalau makan waktu petang, duduk dibawah pohon rendang sambil berborak-borak isu semasa, perghhh..... memang syok. Rojak buah ni kalau versi Chinese terutama di sebelah Pulau Pinang ditambahkan pula sotong basah, keropok udang dan cakoi yang dikeringkan.....Lagi terangkat dibuatnya.

Untuk kuahnya terdapat beberapa versi yang boleh diikuti. Saya lebih gemar resipi yang disediakan oleh Chef Florence Tan, ala-ala Nyonya style. Rojak ini tidak ada ertinya tanpa "petis". Petis atau otak udang memainkan peranan penting dalam menyediakan kuah rojak ini. So sebagai ganti kuih Kosui Kentang yang tak jadi tu terimalah MALAYSIA FRUITS SALAD aka Rojak Buah.
