Another first! The Dragon fruit! We found this treasure at the Asian market along with the prickly lychee nuts, crimson plums and elegant lavender eggplants.
The fruit doesn't have a lot of flavor, but it blends nicely with other fruits and the shells make a beautiful presentation. The salad is made from dragon fruit balls, melon, kiwi and mangos with a homemade poppy seed vinaigrette - recipe below.
The next time you go to a market or grocery store, find a fruit or vegetable you haven't tried and find a recipe for it, or better yet, create your own! You may find a new favorite!
