Blue Monday: Dragon Fruit Salad

Dragon Fruit Salad

We grow our own dragon fruit on the ranch. We patiently wait for the plant to produce this delicious fruit. My favorite is the reddish-pink color. I love the sweet taste, along with the red onion and yellow bell pepper. A raspberry vinegar salad dressing goes well all together on a bed of lettuce. I think this photo goes well for  Mellow Yellow Monday and Blue Monday. Are you familiar with the fruit?

The dragon fruit is grown throughout Asia and Mexico. I was fortunate to get a starter plant from a friend. She tells me that many avocado trees have been known to have the dragon fruit plant growing inside, climbing upwards to reach fro the light. As you can see below, there's a variety of color inside, as well as taste. Mine sort of tastes like a Kiwi but naturally sweeter. It's funny how the outward shell of some fruits can look so rough in appearance but inside, you've hit the sweet spot!
