You may have tried many versions of the vibrant Mexican salsa. Everyone loves to toss in some jalapeno to make their hearts leap or add tomatillos when they want a cosy dip for their tacos. But, ever thought of adding kiwis to your salsa bowl? If not, that’s what you should try next. If healthy food is your thing, think not twice to chop these fruits into your salsa bowl. You’ll get the goodness of vitamins A, C and K and also omega 3 fatty acids. Kiwis are also a rich source of serotonin that can help you sleep better. The fruits are good for diabetics too.

Now, that you are convinced to make a salsa out of kiwi, how do you go about the business? Nutritionist Pooja Makhija is here to help with a easy recipe for her version of the kiwi salsa. She chooses Chilean kiwis that are not fully ripe. Semi ripe kiwis balance the sweetness with a unique tartness. Skin them and chop them into a bowl. Add chopped onions, cilantro and jalapeños to make it a fiery affair. To add a tangy sharpness, add lime juice. Complete the recipe by adding salt and chilli flakes. Be careful not to mush the kiwis while mixing the ingredients. Check out Pooja’s recipe here:
