Preparation of fruit salad with exotic fruit

  1. First wash the pitaya then cut them in half lengthwise. Empty the two halves with the help of a teaspoon, taking care not to break the shells that you will use to serve the fruit salad, then cut the pulp into cubes . Continue by cleaning the melon and making cubes.
  2. Also peel the kiwis and mangoes and also cut the pulp of these fruits into cubes. Transfer the fruit into a bowl, sprinkle with sugar and drizzle with filtered lemon juice. Mix and leave to rest for about ten minutes in the refrigerator .
  3. Serve the fruit salad directly inside the pitaya shells kept aside.
  4. The fruit salad can obviously be prepared and enriched with the fruit you like best. Try adding strawberries, raspberries, grapes or something else.

Alternatively we suggest you try the sweet piadina with fruit .


This recipe is good if eaten when the fruit is still cold and fresh, so we advise you to keep it only a few hours after making it. Any advice in case you want to use it for a picnic or lunch at work? Store it in a cooler or next to a block of ice . We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.
