What are some good uses for dragon fruit?

While the fruit looks cool, its doesn't have a whole lot of flavor.

What are some things I can do with it? They have it real cheap at the grocery store here.

TIA

Pitaya or dragon fruit to me taste like a Kiwi when it is ripe. Aside from fruit plates and salads only thing I know is make preserves or jam out of it.:chef:

since I run across it so very rarely, it is always a wonderful treat. chilled and sliced and enjoyed on it's own.
to me it is all texture--think jicama?
do include other fruits on a platter, but it is usually the first thing gone.
have not seen it in the states and even here in Alaska, we get some rather exotic stuff. last I had was on a job out of Singapore.
enjoy one for me!!!

monsterguide.net tells you how best to prepare it:

''There are a few ways to get your dragon fruit ready to eat. We will use a method that utilizes a tablespoon to separate the skin from the flesh. You can run the spoon around the outside of the first section to get to the good parts. Once you have separated skin and flesh, lift it out and put it on a cutting board. Remember that the skin is not edible. Turn the dragon fruit around and remove any leftover skin. Slice the dragon fruit into cubes and eat. You will be amazed at the flavorful sensations that burst in your mouth and tickle your taste buds. So, the next time you are at the grocery store and you notice a prickly, cactus-like dragon fruit, pick one up and bring it home as a new taste sensation for your family.''
