Asian Fresh Lychee Salsa

Asian Fresh Lychee Salsa
This small fruit (originally from Asia) once peeled, contains a delicate sweet, white fleshed, grape like fruit. Although the inner fruit can be dried (like a raisin), the hard pit (seed) is somewhat toxic and should not be consumed.

The pleasant sourness of fresh arugula, the sweetness of oranges, and the hint of licorice in fresh fennel are perfect partners for this classic vinaigrette. A good choice for a summer appetizer.
