How to Make Kiwi Quinoa Salad with Shrimp

If you’re looking for something different & something healthy, then this Kiwi Quinoa Salad is one recipe you must try!

kiwisKiwis are also called Chinese gooseberries, and are from New Zealand & California with being available all year.

The lovely, fresh, green color of the fruit is disguised by a hairy, dull green exterior. When sliced, they are very pretty with the intricate, dark circle of seeds in the middle. They look like vibrant flowers!

When combined with other fruit, on a fruit tray or salad, they add a beautiful touch of contrasting color. When cooked, they turn an olive green color.
