For some reason I have always thought of kiwis as an all season fruit – it’s in my house all year long and they seem to be in Costco, always fresh, year round! With the summer abundance of fruit, I have been looking for ways to use them! As decoration (see Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Tart) or as more savory options, like this spicy jalapeño kiwi salsa!
Kiwis have a unique history – surprisingly, they are native to China, where it used to be called Chinese gooseberry. No idea where the goose came from (although there are red core kiwis according to Wiki). Then the cultivation journey of the kiwi fruit went to New Zealand, where there are birds that are called kiwi birds…LOL but New Zealanders named these bright green fuzzy fruits the kiwifruit, and it stuck!!!
This salsa only takes 4 ingredients and can be used as a chips and dip or a topping for fish!!!
Ingredients (~2 cups salsa)
4 kiwis, fuzzy skin peeled off, and kiwis diced
1 medium jalapeno, diced (if you want less spice, use half)
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1-2 limes, juiced
1. Dice the kiwis. Dice the jalapenos. Chop the cilantro. Juice the limes. Mix!
