Pineapple - Kiwi Salad with Brown Sugar and Lime


\
We ate almost half of the salad in lunch when I took these photos...this was the amount kept for my late afternoon snack. 



Since childhood, I have always liked a Fruit Salad or in desi-language 'Fruit-Chaat' as an after lunch snack. My Mom often serve it to me and my Brother as soon as we wake up from our afternoon sleep.... Chopped seasonal fruits with a dash of black salt and homemade chaat masala...
From then till present, I never get tired of eating Fruit-Chaat in the late afternoon or sometimes even replacing lunch with a bowl full of seasonal fruits or a Fruit-Chaat. Because my Hubby dear is not very fond of eating fruits, but yes, he can accompany me with a smoothie or any innovative salad. Keeping this in mind, I tweaked my regular fruit salad by adding some perfectly ripe Kiwifruit, hard-boiled Eggs and my Hubby's favorite Pepper-jack Cheese cubes. And yay... we ate about all of this for lunch on the day I took these photos, and then about an hour later I ate the rest for a snack.


It is important to note that Kiwi Fruits contain a remarkable amount of Vitamin C, E and A. The high content in dietary fiber helps improving diseases such as diabetes, by controlling sugar levels, and colon cancer, since fiber binds to toxic compounds in the colon and helps us expel them.(source)



Ingredients:


  • 1 1/2 cups of pineapple cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 KiwiFruit, peeled and cut into slices 
  • 1 Apple, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2-3 hard-boiled Eggs, cut into halves with yolk separated
  • 1 tablespoon Brown-Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon juice from one Lime
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh Mint Leaves
  • Pinch salt and Black Pepper
How to Peel Kiwi:
  • A vegetable peeler can crush soft kiwi flesh if you attempt to remove the hairy skin with this tool. I like this method, which won't bruise the fruit.
  1. Trim the ends of the fruit and insert a small spoon between the skin and the flesh, with the bowl of the spoon facing the flesh. Push the spoon down and carefully move it around the fruit, separating the flesh from the skin. 
  2. Gently remove the spoon and pull the loosened skin away from the flesh.
  • I used the skin to decorate my salad after washing thoroughly with warm water.
Directions:
  • Toss the fruits gently with the egg yolk(hard boiled), brown sugar, lime juice, salt, lime zest and black pepper.
  • Allow to sit for 15 minutes and just before serving add one teaspoon minced fresh mint leaves.
