Kiwi Salsa

Kiwi Lime Salsa
I came up with this recipe over a year ago after watching a segment on TV about the health benefits of kiwis and learning that they are one of the few common fruits that have lower levels of pesticides when grown conventionally.  So they are fairly inexpensive, highly nutritious and in my opinion, one of the tastiest fruits out there.  I had never thought of using kiwis in a salsa before, but had heard of mango salsas and ones made with other fruits so I thought I would give it a try.  It does take awhile to cut up all the kiwis, but it is worth it, especially if you want to impress all of your friends at your next party or get together.  I made this for my 33rd birthday party and it was definitely everyone's favorite dish.  It was gone within an hour and at least three friends left with a print out of this recipe.  I still get comments about it a year later, so I figured it was time to post the recipe for the rest of the world to see.  Nothing complicated or highly inventive, but amazing nonetheless.  And it looks pretty!  :)

Kiwi Lime Salsa

8 kiwis, cut into small pieces
1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
Small red onion, finely diced
Zest of two limes, juice of one
1 or 2 jalapenos, finely diced
Small bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt, pepper and garlic powder (to taste)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and let sit in fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
