Mega Kiwi Cucumber Salsa
THIS CRISP, REFRESHING SALSA IS BURSTING WITH THE FLAVORS OF JUICY MEGA KIWI, COOL CUCUMBER, TART LIME, AND SPICY JALAPEÑO.
We got together with friends to watch the 2018 Super Bowl last night. You know how it goes, everyone brings their favorite party dish to share! I wanted to bring a unique dish that I hadn't done before and am I glad I did. This Mega Kiwi Cucumber Salsa was so popular I NEEDED to make it again today to have to myself. It’s so good after I snapped these photos I stood over the bowl, eating it with a fork like a chopped salad.
Here's What You Need:
- 4 Mega Kiwi Diced
- 2 Cups diced English cucumber
- 1 jalapeño, seeded and diced
- 4 scallions, minced (or green onion)
- Zest and juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2-3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
- your favorite tortilla chips ( I used Clancey's Hint of Lime Tortilla chips)
Combine the Mega Kiwi, cucumber, jalapeño, scallions or green onions, lime zest and juice, salt, pepper, and cumin in a medium bowl and toss to combine. Stir in the cilantro just before serving.
My original plan was to include avocado, and you certainly can if you want, but in the end I didn’t think this salsa needed it. There are already so many delicious flavors going on: juicy Mega Kiwi, crisp cucumber, tart lime, spicy jalapeño, fresh scallions, a touch of smoky cumin, and verdant cilantro.
It also makes a delicious topping for grilled chicken or salmon. If you don't like cilantro, try it with mint instead. I may even try it on a fish taco :D Happy eating!
