I am so excited for the Olympics this summer! I’m much more of a summer Olympics fan than a winter Olympics fan and can’t wait to watch the opening ceremonies in just a few weeks. In the meantime I’m following the Team USA coverage on their Facebook page.
This past week I was challenged to try a fruit or vegetable I’ve never tried before. While walking through the produce section there wasn’t much I hadn’t tried, but then I came upon the dragon fruit. Bingo! Not sure what to do with it I simply peeled back the pink skin like a banana and inside found the round white fruit with little seeds. I liked it, but I’ll admit I did not love it as a stand-alone fruit choice and prefer it paired with something else. So I got creative and sliced it up, got out my little star cookie cutter from Pampered Chef and just like that I had my “GO TEAM USA” fruit salad, which I’m sure will also now become my Memorial Day & 4th of July fruit salad as well.
Yield: 2-3 servings (adjust as needed depending on number of desired servings)
To make, you will need:
2 cups fresh strawberries, halved
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 dragon fruit, skin peeled and sliced about 1/4″
1. Mix strawberries & blueberries together in medium bowl.
2. Using a mini-star cookie cutter, cut the dragon fruit slices into stars.
3. Top the berries with the dragon fruit stars.
If you don’t have a star cookie cutter, you can just slice the dragon fruit rounds into halves or quarters.
