Tropical Fruit Salad


This Tropical Fruit Salad is easier to achieve than you would think. I found pink pineapple and dragon fruit (pitaya) at my local Ralphs. These days, we can get most any ingredients we want. I like to make something like this occasionally to mix up the fruit in my diet. If you haven’t tried dragon fruit, I highly recommend it. This is an easy and delicious salad that will surprise your family and friends.
