Kiwi Salsa

Though I am missing lot of fruits here in India, compare to USA, I haven't stopped myself from overindulging my family with the fruits. I have been buying lot of tropical picks in fruit market, Apples, Banana, Pomegranate, Guava etc. I have bought Kiwi also some times, as my little one does not say no to this tart fruit, she always finishes this fruit in my house. But I have different plan this time for this rare Fruit, Kiwi, as I wanted my whole family to try it out this time. (Yes, you got it right, I have to hide it in some superb recipe that they don't even notice it.)
Kiwi Salsa
After some research into recipes with Kiwi, I am happy with this Kiwi Salsa and surprisingly this became the winner at my home. Usually if you are like me, you will be hesitant to use fruits in your cooking or recipes, but trust me on this, this will change your mind. and you will like this version of eating fruits.
The buttery taste of Avocado and spiciness of green chili will completely make you forget the tart taste of this fruit, and makes your salsa tangy and unique. As I have tested this recipe in my kitchen, you can make this with no doubt to get those wonderful results. Serve those Chips and Sticks with this wonderful Fruity Salsa. Here is the recipe for you, EnjoY!

Avocado - 1 ( medium ripe)
Red Onion - 1 (small)
Cluster Tomato - 1 ( medium)
Kiwi - 1 ( medium)
green chili - 2
salt - 1 tsp
black pepper - 1 tsp
cilantro - 1 Tbsp
Kiwi Salsa Served in Avocado Shell, Go Green ;-)

  1. Cut the Avocado vertically and pit out the seed. Run the knife around the edges and take out the Avocado. (Save the Avocado Shell to use as Bowls later).Cut the avocado into slices, and add them to ziploc cover and seal it then mash it from outside. (You have to admit that your little one can do this better than you, so let them do this part.)
  2. meanwhile, Seed out the Green Chile and cut them into small pieces.Cut the tomato to small pieces. Chop the Red onion into small pieces. 
  3. Peel the Kiwi and cut into small pieces and set them aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, add red onion, tomato slices, green chili, mix with the spoon. (using spoon is a good idea, if you use hand later it will burn because of the green chili).
  5. Add salt and black pepper and mix thoroughly.
  6. Add the mashed Avocado to this mixture and mix it well.
  7. Now at the end add Kiwi slices and mix it well and top with cilantro. 

Ta Daaa! Kiwi Fruity Salsa is ready to be served with those Chips. I have tried this with Stacy Chips, Tortilla Chips, Totilla Shells, Bread Sticks, and it was a hit always. For any crunchy snacks this soft and spicy salsa always stood as a best combination and now no need to waste those Kiwi fruits in my house and the whole family enjoys this.


  • In regular salsa or guacamole, we use lemon. But in this one, Kiwi replaces the lemon for tanginess and tartness, so no need of lemon in this recipe. 
  • You can add pomegranate seeds also to add some color and sweetness (of course more fruit serving to family as well :-) ).
