- 2 medium sized dragon fruit
- 1 tablespoon mint, minced
- ½ teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and finely minced
- 2 limes juiced, plus additional wedges for garnish
Cut the fruit in half length wise. Then, as you would an avocado use a small knife slice the flesh of the fruit from top to bottom and from side to side creating a ½ inch grid pattern. Take care to slice all the way through the flesh but not through the skins. Then use a large soup spoon or serving spoon to scoop out the diced fruit into a medium bowl. Repeat with all the halves. Retaining the hollowed out skins.
Toss the fruit chunks with the minced mint, ginger and juice from 2 limes.
Return the salad to the hollowed out skins to serve as individual bowls of salad. Garnish with additional lime wedges on the side.
