Best way to eat dragonfruit (aka pitaya)

My friend and I bought these at the farmer's market because they are so pretty, and neither of us had ever tried one. She ate her's and claimed it tasted terrible, bland with chemical after-taste. It is *supposed* to taste something like a kiwi - it's the fruit of a type of cactus.

Before I cut mine open, any ideas for uses, other than eating as raw fruit? (In case mine tastes bad too). Is it better cooked or with addition of sugar?

Here are some basics:
