Passionate Star and Litchi Fruit Salad
Fresh litchi fruit is hard to find outside of Asian or specialty markets, so stick with canned litchis to save both time and money.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 6
1 (14-ounce) can litchis, drained
1 cup mango, chopped
1 cup seedless green grapes, halved
2 tablespoons passion fruit juice concentrate
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 star fruit, small
Toss litchis, mango, and grapes together in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle salad with passion fruit and lime juice. Toss gently to mix and coat.
Gently wash and dry star fruit. Slice across to make ½-inch thick star slices. Gently toss slices into salad, reserving a few as garnish. Garnish salad and serve immediately.
Looking for Litchis
If you don't reside in a warm climate, don't waste too much time looking for fresh litchis. Litchis are delicate fruits with prickly skin, juicy white flesh, and large seeds. The highly perishable fruit damage and spoil easily, making them hard and/or expensive to ship long distances. Most grocers only carry canned litchis, which have the skins and pits removed.
