If you’re looking for a stunner of a fruit salad with just a few ingredients and an amazing dressing, then boy do we have a salad for you! What’s even better is it’s perfect for enjoying a night in of streaming season 2 of “House of the Dragon” since legend says that the star fruit of our salad recipe was created thousands of years ago by fire-breathing dragons 🐲🔥

AND, if you’re cutting up that fruit with an F.N. Sharp Damascus Steel Kitchen Sword (err, knife), then you can pretend you’re wielding one of those famous Valyrian steel blades 🔪

Anyway, this fruit salad recipe is loaded with refreshing white dragon fruit and luscious strawberries, plus sweet and tart blueberries to round out the flavor profile. Then, it’s tossed in a dressing of fresh lime, orange and agave to make your taste buds do the tango. 

Now, if you’ve never had dragon fruit before, hoo boy. You’re in for a treat! Also known as “pitaya”, this fruit is not only gorgeous inside and out with it’s white flesh dotted with black seeds and its pink, exotic-looking skin, it’s also super delicious! Once you taste it, you just might think, “Hey! This tastes just like pear and kiwi!” And then you’ll smile and smile. 

So, round up your ingredients, get your cutting board ready, grab your F.N. Sharp Chef Knife or Utility Knife, and check out our tutorial on cutting dragon fruit if needed before slicing into the recipe below!
