Kiwi, Mango, and Cucumber Salsa with Lime and Jalapeno found on KalynsKitchen.com

A few weeks ago I was e-mailing back and forth with my friend Lydia and mentioned that I had mangos and kiwis and was wondering what to make. Lydia immediately suggested salsa, and this ultra-simple Kiwi, Mango, and Cucumber Salsa with Lime and Jalapeno was the happy result.

Although this salsa doesn’t have a lot of ingredients, it’s extra flavorful from the mango, kiwi, and lime juice, with a slight touch of spiciness from the jalapeno, and the cucumber adds a nice crunch. I ate this over grilled chicken breasts. I didn’t remember to take a photo of the chicken plated with the salsa, sorry, but check after the recipe for more chicken, meat, and fish I think would be good with this salsa.

Peel the kiwifruit and dice into pieces approximately 1/2 inch. Peel the mango and cut into pieces the same size as the kiwi. (Here is How to Cut a Mango if you haven’t done it before.) Cut up cucumbers in pieces the same size as kiwifruit and mango. I had small cucumbers with thin skins, but if you’re using larger cucumbers I would peel or partially peel them. Thinly slice the green onions.

Mix fresh squeezed lime juice with just a touch of green Tabasco sauce, or you could use a couple of small jalapenos, finely diced if you don’t have the green Tabasco. Mix all the ingredients together and it’s done. You can chill for a few hours, or serve at room temperature.

Ingredients:

  • 4 kiwifruit, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 mango, peeled, seed removed, and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 small cucumbers, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (if the cucumber has thick skin, I would peel it)
  • 2-3 green onions, sliced
  • 4 T fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp. green Tabasco sauce (or more, if you like it spicy)
  • sea salt to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp.)

Directions:

  1. Peel kiwifruit and cut into pieces about 1/2 inch. Peel mango and remove seed, then cut the mango into pieces about 1/2 inch. Cut cucumbers into pieces the same size as kiwi and mango, peeling if the cucumber you have has a thick skin. Slice green onions.
  2. Combine the diced kiwifruit, mango, cucumber, and sliced green onions in a bowl (with a tight-fitting lid if you’re going to chill the salsa.)
  3. Whisk together the lime juice and green Tabasco sauce in a small bowl, then pour over the fruit-vegetable mixture. Stir a few times to combine.
  4. This can be served at room temperature or chilled for a few hours.
