Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small sauté pan over moderate heat and cook the onion and garlic for 3 minutes, until tender and lightly browned. Transfer to the bowl of a food processor or a blender. Add the kiwi pulp and purée until smooth. With the processor running, gradually add the extra virgin olive oil to form a smooth and creamy emulsion. Add the juice, balsamic vinegar and salt. Pulse to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning before serving.
