Savory Saturday: Kiwi Salsa

Is it really still winter? I'm definitely not used to this.  In Phoenix, the beginning of March is filled with beautiful 80 degree days... perfection.  In Portland? Rain. Cold. Repeat.  Since the weather isn't cooperating with my need for spring, I made a quick little salsa that did the trick.  Pair this baby with a margarita, some chips and guac and you'll think you're on a mini-vacation.

To bulk it up even more, I topped grilled salmon tacos with the Kiwi Salsa.  Good choice. Definitely take the time to fry up some corn tortillas - the crunch is a great contrast to the fish, fruit and guacamole.

Kiwi Salsa
Recipe adapted slightly from Jessica at How Sweet Eats 

4 kiwi, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
1 jalapeno, very finely minced (use 1/2 if you like it mild!)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
generous squeeze of fresh lime juice

Combine all ingredients and stir gently.  Refrigerate until ready to use.  
Eat over tacos, with chips, or just by the spoonful!
