Valentine fruit salad

It is Valentine's Day tomorrow!


I made this beautiful fruit salad before dinner yesterday. Had a home-cooked meal. Nothing much as we do not celebrate it anymore. However since hubby is flying to KL today and be there till Sunday, so I decided to cook and make this lovely salad yesterday.


My chilled fruit salad consists of dragon fruits, kiwis and oranges. I love dragon fruits especially the red flesh which is sweeter and tastier than the one with white flesh. But not easy to find red flesh dragon fruits here so I resort to using the white flesh. The kids love dragon fruits as well. Great antioxidant and rich in fiber.

As white flesh dragon fruits could be bland in taste, I added the kiwis and oranges to my salad. Great combination if you asked me. I could just eat them as it is but no, I wanted something different for my salad.

For the kids' sake, I sprinkled salt onto the salad to reduce the sour taste from kiwi and orange.


And I did made a separate dressing for my and hubby's bowl of salad. My honey-citrus dressing was very simple. Just 4 ingredients, i.e. honey, lemon, extra virgin olive oil and salt.


A teaspoon of honey
Juice from half of lemon
Few drops of extra virgin olive oil
A teaspoon of salt

Mix all the 4 ingredients in a bowl. And voila! A very tantalising sweet and savoury dressing. Great for fruit dipping too!


Isn't it a healthy snacking? ^^

Happy Valentine's Day to you!
