Beef Tacos with Kiwi Salsa

Who doesn’t love a good taco? I sure do. Also love the idea that you can vary it endlessly, so you’ll never get bored. This beef taco is light and fresh, even though it contains meat that sometimes tend to make a taco too heavy for my taste. The combination of meat, kiwi salsa, pickled red onion and feta cheese makes it filling yet fresh.

I love to keep a taco quite neat and clean. Keeping all the classic ingredients: a source of protein, a salsa and something to top it with. But that doesn’t mean you need to eat you taco with the classic tomato salsa and shredded cheese on top!

Today I wanted to make a fancier version of a classic taco with minced beef. I also wanted it to be filling, but still light and fresh. So I chose to make a tacos using a piece of organic beef and accompany it with a kiwi salsa and some creamy feta cheese.

Ingredients for the tacos:

  • Gluten free tortilla bread
  • Organic beef
  • Kiwi
  • Green chili
  • Lime
  • Parsley
  • Scallion
  • Feta cheese
  • Pickled red onion

So I totally loved how this taco turned out! The combination of savory beef, sweet and fresh kiwi salsa, creamy and salty feta cheese topped with sweet and crunchy pickled red onion! Its a combination that creates a symphony in your mouth!
