Dragon Fruit Salad


Dragon Fruit Salad

  • 2 dragon fruit
  • 1 cup fresh papaya chunks
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks

Cut the dragon fruit in half and loosen the meat from the skin by running a spoon along the edge and scooping it out as one piece. (Keep the hollow skin halves for serving the salad.) Dice it up, toss with pineapple and papaya chunks and place back into the hollow halves. Serve chilled. Makes 4 servings.

Live from Columbia County. . . .

The Columbia County Amateur Series is returning to the Columbia County Exhibition Center in Grovetown this month, and performers will vie for the grand prize of $1,000 and the chance to appear before the producers of “America’s Got Talent” or “The Voice.” The Top 8 from the preliminary rounds will compete in the finale, which will be recorded live. The shows begin at 7 p.m. each night, and there is no charge to attend.
