The produce section is overflowing with DELICIOUS fruit! Anyone else agree? I love this time where we're at the end of the spring but the beginning of summer so we get the best fruit of both seasons 😍. Let's make it super easy and combine it all in a bowl and call it berry watermelon dragon fruit salad 🙌🏻.
This salad is jam packed with ALL the fruit: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, watermelon, and even dragon fruit! Oh and no messy dressings here. There's enough different flavors that just a sprinkling of poppy seeds and a little fresh mint does the trick.
Speaking of dragon fruit, how COOL is that??? The black seeded white fruit is completely hidden in a crazy looking hot pink and lime green skin. It looks awesome when you plop it in your fruit basket next to those standard oranges and apples. A conversation piece at the very least.
For those of you with less adventurous palates, the dragon fruit actually tastes and has a very similar texture to a kiwi. I just happen to be vaguely allergic to that delectable green fruit, as well as pineapple. Apparently eating something that makes your mouth itch isn't normal 😅. Definitely still eat them though...Super good decisions right?
Ah well, at least there's the fantastical looking dragon fruit to substitute. Ergo, berry watermelon dragon fruit salad for the WIN!Print
