Winter Fruit Plate

 
FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

On my latest trip to a Vietnamese market, I picked up a dragon fruit. What a neat food! The color is bright fuchsia on the outside with white, kiwi-like seeds on the inside. It's a little sour, so it's better to mix dragonfruit with sweeter fruit in a salad as a fun complement. Here's one great way to use this versatile fruit!

  • 1 dragon fruit
  • 1 mango

  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 papaya

  • 1 dried banana sheet
  • Vanilla sugar or powdered sugar (optional)

Directions:

  1. Peel and section the tangerines.
  2. Cut the dragon fruit in half and remove the pulp from the outer skin with a spoon. Dice it up.
  3. Peel and slice the mango into small match-stick shapes (a julienne).
  4. Peel, core, and dice the rest of the fruit (except the orange).
  5. Arrange the fruit in an attractive manner in a big bowl or footed glass. Squeeze  the orange juice over the top.
