Dragon Fruit Salad

dragonfruit yumBeautiful. Simple. Fresh. I always make this salad when I have dragon fruit. It’s eye-popping and delicious. To me it tastes like a soft mix of kiwi, pear, and chia seed.






The recipe:

  • 1 dragon fruit
  • Juice of 3 shikuwasa or 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Zest from shikuwasa
  • 1 tbsp torn mint

Cut the dragon fruit in half. Remove the inside with your fingers. It should slide out pretty easily in one piece. This can be white or pink. Dice this into small pieces and toss into a bowl. Add shikuwasa juice, honey, mint, and zest to the bowl and mix. Put the dragon fruit mix right back into the peel for simple and pretty plating or eat from the bowl.

Its other name is Pitaya! Like pitta, yah! =) Dragon fruit is great for pitta people! So eat up!

It’s also a good choice for kaphas due to its lower sugar content compared to other fruits.

  1. I hadn’t seen the Dragon Fruit yet! I’m thrilled to be able to get some now!
    I love your pictures by the way.

  2. […] To eat, cut it in half and scoop out the center with a spoon the way you would a Kiwi. It is delicious. It’s doesn’t taste exactly like a Kiwi but the fruit flavor and texture is strikingly similar and you get to eat more of it (my favorite part).
