Expert Tips

Kiwifruit Peeling 101: First cut about 1/8 inch off of one end. Next, slip a spoon between the fruit and the skin and move it so that it loosens the skin all the way around. Simply slip the peel off, and you have a perfectly round peeled kiwifruit!

Balsamic vinegar instead of the white vinegar gives the salad dressing a sweeter, richer flavor.
