Honey Kiwi Walnut Salad



I literally feel like I finished an assignment right before the deadline. Hehe… Before that, a quick look into the scenes out here. We have had an awesomely wet weekend, with heavy rains, that caused total water clogging in most of the parts of the city. On Friday, we took a drive towards the outskirts and seriously enjoyed the rains. However, on Saturday, it caused a lot of trouble, but that comes with the enjoyment, isn’t it? The girls had their madrassa closed yesterday, and have their schools off today, so they are pretty excited about what the rains have offered them. πŸ™‚ The rains are expected to be on and off for this whole week. Thankfully, slowly it is feeling like winter, and I hope this chill stays well till March or April.


It’s been long since I have participated in the AtoZ Recipe Challenge hosted by Vidya and Jolly – where we cook an ingredient of a particular alphabet every month. You can find all the other posts done in this challenge here. Somehow, soPinmetimes, the alphabet wouldn’t have ingredients that I am keen on using, so I would just skip. Hehe… Most of the time, the posts I make for challenges are usually eaten up by me, because I know how much my girls would just push up their nose. πŸ˜• Anyway, so this month, the alphabet in question is “K” and the choice was really easy – Kiwi. This is one of my favorite fruits and also one among the limited fruits that my sister eats. I never buy any other kiwi apart from Zespri or the one that comes from Italy. They are sweet and delicious, with that slight tang to it. I have hardly very few kiwi recipes on the blog and they are all smoothies. πŸ˜€


After fiddling with the idea of making a kiwi lemonade, my eyes actually fell on this interesting salad while I was mindlessly scrolling for more ideas. I just had to somehow make it for myself, so last night, after a long drive to and from Abu Dhabi, I quickly threw together this salad onto the plate, clicked and ate it. I must say that I will surely make this each time I have kiwis in my fridge. It hardly has any ingredients, and all the ingredients just blend so well with each other that you will be surprised how such a simple dish could taste so delicious. I can easily say that this is my second favorite after this chickpeas pom salad. I lazily drizzled the dressing individually on top, but you could whisk all and use it on the salad. Anyway, when you eat, you have to toss well to cover all the flavors, so don’t bother with the later suggestion! πŸ˜‰ Off to the recipe…

    Rafeeda, I too love kiwi and usually can’t buy them too often in Kenya as they are expensive. In India they are cheaper so I make the best of them. This is one salad I’m definitely making. The rains in Dubai prevented so many flights from landing or taking off. My daughter was suppose to arrive into Bangalore yesterday. She spent 20 hours at the airport and her flight kept on getting postponed till she got so exhausted that she went back home at 5 this morning.

      Totally unfortunate… many struggled due to the heavy rains at the airport. I even knew of someone who was stuck inside a flight for almost 8 hours. Thank you so much Mayurji…

    I am totally loving the fact that this salad is so easy to put together. This would be wiped clean by both of us at home as we love a bit of sweet and fruits both in our salads. We just cannot only chomp on leaves and require some nuts or seeds along with a little jaggery or honey as part of the dressing! My husband is a huge Kiwi Fan, unlike me and like you, buys the Zespri ones only as they are perfect, ripe well in room temperature even in a city like Mumbai which is humid all season. Simple salad recipes with no fancy dressing, just like yours, is what we always look for at home too! A must try on my list next.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Haha exactly! A chomping leaves only salad is the most boring thing that you can ever have! Thank you so much Vidya for your generous comment…

  17. The flavors and texture in this salad are really inviting.I always love to have them anytime. The sweetness from kiwi and crunch of walnuts is the best combinatiin for any salad.Easy to assemble this one is definitely a hit in my place.Awesome.
