One of my favorite fruits is kiwi. Typically I slice it thinly and eat it as a snack, yet decided to celebrate the fact that November kicks off the kiwi season by incorporating it into a dish! As promised in my pomegranate post, I found a tasty salsa recipe that include pomegranate seeds: Kiwi Salsa (SimplyRecipes.com). I created this easy and delightful hors d’oeuvre as an appetizer for Thanksgiving dinner and highly recommend it for anyone hosting a holiday get-together. Aren’t the colors so festive?
4 ripe kiwis, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 avocado, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 tbsp thinly sliced green onion
1 tbsp chopped jalapeño chili peppers (no seeds)
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
Simply place the pomegranate seeds, kiwi, avocado, green onion and olive oil in a medium sized bowl. Gently fold in the chopped jalapeño based on how hot you’d like your salsa! Finally, add cilantro, as well as salt and pepper to taste…dig in! I served it with a variety of Food Should Taste Good chips. My favorite? Grab a bag of the Sweet Potato!
This recipe was an absolute hit and easily one of my favorite recipes I’ve created thus far. As you can see, my dad enjoyed it! I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving…who’s ready for Christmas?
