How to prepare dragon fruit

Preparing dragon fruit is quite simple! Here's a step-by-step guide:

Selecting the Fruit:
Choose a ripe dragon fruit that feels slightly soft to the touch but not mushy. The skin should be vibrant with bright color and free from bruises or blemishes
    Washing the Fruit:Rinse the dragon fruit under cool running water to remove any dirt or debris from the skin. Use your fingers or a soft brush to gently scrub the surface if needed. 
    Cutting the Fruit:
    Place the dragon fruit on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, slice the dragon fruit into 2 either horizontally or vertically to create two halves.

    Peeling the Fruit:

    You can either peel the skin off with your fingers or scoop out the flesh with a spoon, similar to how you would eat a kiwi. The flesh should come away easily from the skin.

    Slicing or Dicing:

    Once the flesh is removed from the skin, you can slice or dice it into pieces of your desired size and shape.

    You can use the skin as a bowl for salad.

    Dragon fruit is often enjoyed in salads, smoothie bowls, or eaten on its own as a refreshing snack.

    Enjoying the Fruit:Dragon fruit can be eaten fresh or added to various dishes for a pop of color and mild sweetness. It pairs well with other tropical fruits like pineapple, mango, and kiwi, as well as yogurt, granola, or coconut flakes.

    Storing the Leftovers:If you have leftover dragon fruit, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Enjoy it chilled for the best flavor and texture.

    You can also freeze the left overs for later use.
