Ready In: 15 Minutes

Serves: 2


  • 1 passion fruit (I used 2 tbsp. frozen)
  • ⅓ cup (80 ml) white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. (8 g) honey
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 finely chopped small garlic clove
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) olive oil


  1. Cut the passionfruit and pour the pulp, juice, and seeds into a small bowl. I defrosted frozen passion fruit outside the fridge for about ten minutes in a bowl. blender, make sure that you gradually add the olive oil to ensure that the mixture doesn’t split.
  2. Use immediately or keep in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Serving Suggestions:
Serve with endive and something fatty to balance the acidity like feta cheese or avocado. This goes well with rosa tomatoes, red and yellow peppers, jalapeno and purple cabbage.

Why do I need to know this recipe?

The assembly process is really quick and simple.

Use frozen passion fruit, but don’t forget to adjust the sweetness because frozen passion fruit is occasionally less sweet and more acidic.

Passion fruit is high in vitamin C. To learn more about vitamin C please see our article, Nutrient of the month – Vitamin C (Immunity and Collagen booster)
