Bright, fresh, and easy, this Kiwi Avocado and Tomato Salad recipe is topped with a simple, sweet, and tangy kiwi fruit dressing. Gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free.
I have to admit that kiwi is one fruit I often forget about. Its funny fuzzy peel and its bright green fruit are kind of hard to miss, but somehow, it doesn't seem to make it into my grocery cart as often as it should.
Kiwi fruit are bursting with good stuff. High in fiber and loaded with over 270 percent of your daily allowance of Vitamin C, they offer healthy amounts of Vitamin E, K, and folate, not to mention more potassium than a banana.
When traveling earlier this summer, I had a salad that was loaded with kiwi, tomatoes, and avocado. It had this wonderful kiwi dressing that I have not stopped thinking about, and I was excited to recreate it. Kiwi makes for a sweet, tangy, and creamy dressing. What can't they do?!
Luckily, the dressing recipe here makes extra so that you can enjoy it for days afterward.
