Kiwi salad

This versatile, bright fruit looks great on a salad, and tastes even better.

  • Yield: Serves 4-6
  • Prep time: 5 minutes

The kiwi is my go-to winter fruit. It's tangy, bright, and easily keeps my mood up when those winter days get cold and gloomy. Plus it is super delicious.

I think most people avoid kiwifruit because it is a bit difficult to peel. Well, maybe not difficult but it isn't easy. And if you do it wrong, you can end up wasting a ton of fruit. The method I use the most when it comes to kiwis is the spoon method. You can see that method and a few others in this fun little video on how to peel kiwifruit.

Also, the kiwi is way more versatile than one might think. Kiwi salsa is a favorite. Let's face it, it's hard to beat a summer tomato and I am not even going to try! I suggest you try this kiwi salsa if you are looking for new recipes.


  • 4 kiwi fruit
  • 1/2 ruby red grapefruit
  • 1 banana


Trim the ends of the kiwifruit, peel them, and cut the fruit into slices. Thick slices, more than a quarter inch thick.

Cut the individual grapefruit slices into slices.

Cut the banana into slices.

Because kiwifruit can get beat and mushy rather easily, I suggest you lay the salad out more like a platter rather than tossing it. Just combine all ingredients, chill and serve.
