What Kind Of Kiwis Are Best For Kiwi Fruit Salad?
I used the ripe New Zealand kiwi fruits with slightly yellow flesh and it is more sweet and less sour than the green ones, so I recommend this variety if you can find them. If not you can use the green ones too, but make sure to use fresh kiwi fruits that are also ripe enough. If the kiwi is not ripe, it will usually be firm. Once they are ripe, they turn soft so you can easily identify the ripe ones to use for this easy fruit salad recipe.
