This salad is a delicious combination of tastes and textures: fresh and creamy, bright and peppery. It’s super easy and quick to make, with just a few ingredients! Plus, it looks impressive and is perfect for serving guests; dragonfruit has a mild taste (I find it similar to kiwi) and shouldn’t scare off those who haven’t tried it before.
Yield: 2 large or 4 side servings
- 1 large dragon fruit
- 1 package baby arugula
- 2 avocados, peeled and diced
- Juice of 1 lemon (or more, if you prefer)
- ¼ cup olive oil (or less, if you prefer)
- 2 teaspoons agave nectar
To prepare the dragon fruit, first cut it in half lengthwise. Using a large spoon, separate the flesh from the rind. Cut the flesh into 1-inch cubes.
Combine the arugula, dragon fruit, and diced avocado.
Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil and agave nectar. Taste and adjust with more lemon juice if desired. Pour the dressing over the salad, gently toss to coat, and serve immediately. *If you aren’t ready to serve the salad, hold off on adding the dressing until just before serving.* Enjoy!
