Recipe For Kiwi Fruit Salsa #Zespri

Today, the challenge for Zespri® 14 Day Daily Scoop of Amazing reads:

Cooking is a great family bonding activity. Try out some of the new recipes from your thumb drive and share the experience with your readers.

We were given a thumb drive together with our 28 kiwi fruit and the recipe on the drive is for Roast Chicken Breast with Kiwi Salsa. I only looked at the drive yesterday just before I went shopping and so I decided to not make the roast chicken part of the recipe. I gave you a lovely chicken salad to kick off the challenge and so I wanted to try the kiwi fruit salsa with something different. I chose smoked kippers – one of my favourite treats to accompany the salsa. It cut right through the oiliness of the fish. I would recommend you try this with snoek or mackerel or your next roast chicken meal. I did not follow the recipe 100 percent so what you see here is my version.
