Chicken And Kiwi Salad

This chicken and kiwi salad was made for the Zespri Kiwi Fruit Challenge.

Chicken And Kiwi Salad

For the next 14 days I will be competing in South Africa’s Zespri Kiwi Fruit Challenge. Together with 8 other bloggers I will be bringing you tips, ideas and recipes. These will feature here on the blog as well as on twitter and Facebook. The winner of this challenge will be decided by who scores the most points and that person will receive R5000. I am running a give away in conjunction with this challenge and the winners of this give away stand a chance of winning a small green kiwi lunchbox and spife; a big yellow lunchbox and spife; lip balm, hand and nail cream; lunch bag and R150 Fruit & Veg voucher. The more you “like” my Facebook posts and comment on my blog posts and tweets, the more chances you stand of winning. As this is an interactive challenge I am inviting you to take part in the the Cut, Scoop and Enjoy competition as well. Simply submit a photo of yourself or someone you know, enjoying a kiwi fruit to: You have until the end of October to enter and you could win one of four R1000 yuppiechef vouchers. Please use Tandy: Lavender and Lime in the subject line.

We have been allocated 2 kiwi fruit a day and for the first day I decided to make a lovely chicken and kiwi salad. This to me is a great lunch box lunch as the cos lettuce stays nice and crispy and if you don’t have knives and forks with you, you can use the cos as a lettuce wrap for the salad. I have used nasturtiums that are growing in abundance in my fynbos garden as well as some coriander flowers for this salad, but you can use any edible flowers you can find. I hope you try some of my recipes and ideas along the way.

Is there any kiwi fruit recipe you would like to see on the blog?
