Key Lime Shrimp & Kiwi Salad

Kiwis are a wonderful fruit, full of fiber, vitamin C, potassium, folic acid, vitamin E, carotenoids (protect cells from damaging effects of free radicals, a source of vitamin A, enhance the function of your immune system, and help your reproductive system function properly) and many more antioxidants.

Kitchen Play’s June menu includes all things Kiwifruit with Zespri as the sponsor. They are a New Zealand company focused on greener growing practices and sustainability; tracking and looking to reduce their carbon emissions; using natural pollination by working with local beekeepers; and KiwiGreen, a program to encourage natural pesticide and weed control in their grower’s orchards. www.zespri.com
