New Zealand is populated by large swaths of kiwi trees. Whip up a chunky salsa using the fuzzy fruit to make your lunch pita sandwich pop with flavor.


  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless turkey breast
  • Salt
  • 2 kiwi fruit, peeled and chopped
  • 1 yellow or orange bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/3 cup chopped mint
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 serrano or jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped Juice of 1⁄2 lime
  • 4 whole-grain pitas, sliced in half
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 2 oz crumbled soft goat cheese


  1. Place turkey and a couple of pinches of salt in a large pot. Cover meat by at least 1 inch with water. Bring water to a temperature at which it is steaming; do not boil the meat. Reduce heat, partially cover pot, and poach for 20 minutes, skimming off any foam. Remove turkey and let cool before thinly slicing.
  2. In a large bowl, gently toss together kiwi, bell pepper, tomatoes, mint, scallions, serrano pepper, garlic, lime juice, and 1⁄4 tsp salt.
  3. To assemble pitas, stuff pita halves with turkey, spinach, goat cheese, and kiwi salsa.
