A Healthy Fruit Salad with Dragon Fruit
Dragon fruit is definitely a curiousity! It’s gorgeous deep pink hue, dotted with black seeds, and it’s spiky exterior definitely scream exotic!
I have a lot of recipes for things to do with dragon fruit — a Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl, a Dragon Fruit Smoothie, Dragon Fruit Sorbet, and a Mango Dragon Fruit Refresher. I thought it was time to celebrate the fruit simply prepared in a fruit salad.
This salad has a combination of stunning tropical fruit, and is tossed in a honey mint dressing and topped with crunchy macadamia nuts. It’s a perfect way to brighten a dreary spring day!
Ingredients for this Fruit Salad with Dragon Fruit

A Simple Honey Mint Vinaigrette
To give this salad a little more pizazz (because honestly, star fruit and even dragon fruit don’t have a lot in the flavor department), I decided to drizzle this beautiful salad with a simple honey mint vinaigrette.
It’s bright and fresh and takes just a minute to whisk together.
For the Dressing, You’ll Need:
- Lemon Juice
