Kiwifruit Salsa

by Tansy Boggon

A zesty salsa, delicious with BBQ meats, tempeh or salmon.

Kiwifruit salsa is a quick and easy side dish that looks delectable and has a tanginess that compliments protein dishes.

Serve it with grilled or baked salmon or other fish, BBQ meats or even marinated tempeh or tofu. You could even try it with fish or tofu tacos or burritos.

Vary it

I try to offer alternatives for my recipes so that dishes can be made in different seasons and countries.

For example, mangos are imported to New Zealand, so they may not always be a feasible option. However, there are alternative summer fruits that would work well in this salsa, such as peaches, nectarines or apricots.

Don’t feel limited to the recipe, and get creative. Taste test as you go to check that the flavours work together.

Another addition that would be delicious in or alongside this salsa is avocado, either diced or sliced.

  • 4 kiwifruits, diced
  • ½ mango, or 1 ripe peach or 2 ripe apricots, diced
  • ½ red capsicum, diced or ½ cup pomegranate seeds
  • ½ cup fresh mint, coriander or flat leaf parsley
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Serve immediately.



It is best served immediately as the kiwifruit will become mushy and glassy on cutting and refrigeration.
