Summer Fruits |Salad|

 I got a beautiful bunch of some summertime fruits from a friend and needed to eat them up quickly. A salad is a rock solid way to throw them all together and eat them while feeling good about your dinner.  The star of this show was the freak on the outside-beauty on the inside dragon fruit. This fruit has a lovely, mild taste and is a bit like a kiwi in texture. It combined like a champ with the other fruits. To eat you just cut off the crazy green outside with a pairing knife. After you cut up the fruit, the fuschia skin simply peels off. It’s all much easier than it looks.

I had this salad with a little roasted duck on the side but on its own is also incredibly flavorful. I just love my proteins.
