Did you know that kiwifruit is a rich source of Vitamin C , Vitamin E, and Potassium? Add Kiwi Pineapple Salsa to any protein to add a rich source of vitamins and minerals to your meal.
Sungold kiwifruit is a new variety of kiwifruit from Zespri. Sungold kiwifruit has smooth skin, unlike traditional kiwi that has fuzzy skin. The fruit is also yellow instead of traditional green. One serving, which is 2 kiwifruit, provides three times more vitamin C than an orange and as much potassium as a medium banana. SunGold is a good source of vitamin E.
We are getting ready to leave for our first trip to Hawaii to celebrate my 40th birthday. My husband and son are excited about our trip. My daughter would love to stay behind. When my husband first suggested the trip she didn’t want to go to Hawaii because of the volcanos. Now she doesn’t want to spend so much time on a plane. We live in Pennsylvania. The trip for us is probably about 10 hours or so. I’m not super thrilled with the long journey either, but a big birthday like this calls for a big trip.
I expect to be eating a lot of fruit while we are there. I decided to get in an island state of mind early by using my supply of kiwifruit to make a salsa that would compliment most proteins.
Shrimp is my favorite protein. I could probably eat shrimp daily but don’t of course. Kiwi Pineapple salsa is perfect served on shrimp. This salsa also would work well with chicken, pork, and other seafood such as salmon.
