A cold salad is perfect for those hot summer days as it’s refreshing, light, and healthy. This simple Strawberry and Kiwi salad is bursting with fresh flavor and it’s kid-friendly, which is always a plus.
Summer berry picking is a great option in the summer, especially if you want to get a head start on that tan! Locally picked strawberries have the best benefits: and you know if they’ve been sprayed with any sort of pesticides! Hand-picking your berries is only better for your body!
Do you like Greek yogurt? It has probiotics that support your gut if you happen to be dairy sensitive. Greek yogurt specifically is lighter on the gut since it’s easier to digest. Also, it has more protein than milk!

- I recommend using fresh fruits for this salad.
- You can sprinkle shelled sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, or pecan nuts to add a new and unique flavor to the salad.
How to store the Strawberry Kiwi salad
You can keep leftover strawberry kiwi salad in the refrigerator for a day or so but the salad will get juicier.
You can add other fruit like mango, pineapple, or even apples to this salad.
Oranges and lemons are in the same family so yes you can replace the orange zest with lemon zest but the flavor of the dressing changes as well since orange zest is much sweeter.
