Kiwi-Cucumber Relish

5.0
(3)

If you’ve thought all the relishes have been invented, then you thought wrong. Kiwi brings an unexpected pop of sweetness and texture to this spicy relish. The green on green tones of the relish are so pretty alongside anything it’s paired with. Serve alongside grilled fish or chicken, drizzled over pan-seared halloumi, or with poached shrimp. Shopping tip: To test if a kiwi is ripe, press the fruit with your thumb. If it gives slightly, then you know it’s ready to eat.
