Exotic Fruit Salad with Dragon Fruit

Have you tasted dragon fruit before? If not, you are in for a treat when you make this exotic fruit salad recipe! Dragon fruit is a lovely looking fruit, which grows in Mexico, Central America, Southeast Asia, Israel, and South America. The plant, which is a type of cactus, comes in three different colors. One has a pink skin with red flesh, one has a pink skin with white flesh, and one is yellow-skinned with white flesh.

This fruit is low in calories and contains fiber, antioxidants, vitamin C, calcium, and phosphorus. It is crunchy and sweet with a flavor that is like a cross between a pear and a kiwi. The flavor is quite mild actually, which is a surprise to people who assume that the fruit’s exciting appearance must mean a strong flavor. This tropical fruit salad recipe also contains strawberries, blackberries and blueberries, as well as peaches and kiwi, to offer plenty of color as well as a soft texture and lots of flavor. The sweetened honey, wine and lemon dressing is amazing too and goes beautifully with the mixed fruit.

This wonderful wine and lemon flavored fruit salad recipe is great served with a cheese platter and some warm French bread and butter. That would make it great as either an appetizer or dessert and you can mix the sweetness of the fruit with the tang of cheese and the savory flavor of bread. You could also serve it that way for a picnic.
