Spicy Kiwi and Jalapeño Salsa

Recipe by: Jerry James Stone | Written November 14, 2012

The end of tomato season is always a sad one for me. But that doesn’t mean I am not willing to compromise, especially when it comes to salsa. This Spicy Kiwi and Jalapeño Salsa, hot and oh so yummy. Try it! And by the time summer rolls around, you’ll be missing kiwi season for sure!


8 kiwis, ripe but firm
1 jalapeño pepper, minced
1/4 cup(s) cilantro, chopped
1/8 cup(s) Sweet Onion, finely chopped
Pinch of sea salt

Total Time:

Recipe Type:
  1. Peel the 8 kiwis and trim the ends.  

  2. Finely dice the kiwi. Now, this is why you want the fruit to be firm but ripe. Firm kiwi will dice like a cucumber. But dicing overly ripe kiwis is like trying to dice pudding–not fun! 

  3. Add the kiwi, 1 jalapeño, 1/4 cup of cilantro, 1/8 cup of sweet onion and pinch of seas salt to a small mixing bowl and gently stir together. 

  4. Enjoy!
