I’ve been known to use just about any fruit in my salsas. Truth is, I have a sweet tooth and I like that hint of candy I get along with the heat. Using kiwi is no exception…the kicker is my friend the kiwi has a bit of a tangy flavor too. So, in this beautiful salsa, you get sweet, tangy and hot. Add a spice-rubbed fish and some gorgeously black charred corn tortillas and dinner just got delicious!
