PINEAPPLE KIWI SALSA

PINEAPPLE KIWI SALSA

Image

I came across so many mango salsa recipes while browsing, and mango season long gone, just had to try this with lots of kiwi and pineapple. Cant understand the diffrence between salsa and salad. I mean, i hardly know what is properly a salsa. As for my conclusions from the recipes read on net  – salsa is a type of condiment or as a dip, which includes a fruit or two along with peppers,jalepanos,onions…etc. And it does not need a dressing… with mustard,olive oil as a salad does. This is my observations…..correct me if iam wrong.

With a perfect interplay of sour,spicy and sweet this salsa is very refreshing as a winter salad. And it looks really beautiful with a medley of colourful veggies along with kiwi and pineapple.

serves :4 as a side for main course

INGREDIENTS:-

  • Half a ripe pineapple
  • 4 kiwis
  • 1 large bell pepper – diced
  • 1 large red onion – diced finely
  • 2 large tomatoes- deseeded and diced
  • 1 large carrot- finely diced
  • 1 cucumber – finely diced
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp lime juice

METHOD:-

Chop all the veggies finely . Cut the kiwi and pineapple into chunks. Gently mix or toss everthing, to combine. If its summer, you can keep in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving. But since it was served this in winter, served just freshly cut. Sprinkle some salt and squeeze half a lime. Garnish with mint or fresh coriander leaves. The crunch of the bell peppers,carrot, mild tasting red onions, went hand in hand with the juicy kiwis and a bit tangy pineapple…. so well. This tastes as lovely as it looks.
