Prep Time: 20 min.

Dragonfruit is such a beautiful fruit, so I couldn’t resist making this delicious carpaccio with cantaloupe, bocconcini, roasted hazelnuts and basil. You can serve it as a starter on a large platter for everyone to share, or you can make individual portions.

What you need


1. Remove the dragonfruit’s outer peel.

2. Slice the fruit finely using a mandolin.

3. Place the sliced dragonfruit on a platter.

4. Use the melon baller to make cantaloupe balls.

5. Top the dragonfruit with the cantaloupe. You can place the melon randomly or in a pattern like mine.

6. Add bocconcini, basil and chopped roasted hazelnuts.

7. Drizzle with olive oil.

8. Mix one tablespoon maple syrup with one tablespoon white wine vinegar.

9. Spoon the dressing onto the salad.

10. Top with sea salt and serve.
