Chips and salsa is always a popular appetizer or snack. How about surprising your party guests with a dragon fruit salsa?
I found dragon fruit marked way down at our local Oakmont Produce shop. It was on the verge of being over ripe, and just begging to be put to good use. This is my first time with this fruit, and I found it to have a really mild flavor.
Have you ever tried a dragon fruit?
This is one fruit I have yet to try. It has a unique flavor, and looks almost like dice when cut up for salsa. Talk about a fun looking appetizer! You can even make a cocktail like this Dragon Fruit Cocktail out of it.
I kid you not, these are bringing back those memories of big fuzzy dice hanging from my rear view mirror when I was a teenager :-).
I decided to make a fun salsa with some lemon juice (still using up lemons anywhere I can!), chives, and diced jalapeño.
I recommend letting the salsa sit for an hour after mixing the ingredients so that the flavors can blend together. It makes a big difference and makes the salsa outstanding!
