Dragon Fruit Dessert

Dragon fruit have a mild flavour and the small seeds add texture. Like passion fruit you are ‘either a chewer of the seeds or a swallower’. Served chilled they are juicy and refreshing. A light dessert to the end of a good meal. They also look colourful and unusual.
2 ripe dragon fruit
I picked the dragon fruit from our garden and kept them in the refrigerator until I needed them.
Wash and dry the dragon fruit. Cut the fruit in half. With a sharp knife, and without cutting through the skin, cut the fruit away from the skin and place it on a chopping board. Cube the fruit.
Pile the cubed fruit back into the skin and serve in a bowl decorated with a sprig of mint, or I used a celery leaf as I had it to hand.
Serves 4 people.
