  • 1 dragon fruit


  • Lay the dragon fruit on its side on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, slice the dragon fruit in half lengthwise.
  • Use a large spoon to carefully scoop out the flesh into two large halves. Discard the dragon fruit skin.
  • Cut into desired shapes and sizes. These are my favorite three cuts:
  • Thin slices: Turn the dragon fruit cut side down, then cut thin slices crosswise from the top to the bottom.
  • Wedges: Turn the dragon fruit cut side down, then cut wide slices around the curvature of the dragon fruit in the opposite direction as the top and bottom of the fruit.
  • Bite Sized Cubes: Follow the steps for cutting the dragon fruit into wedges and then cut each wedge into bite-sized chunks.
