My family LOVES fruit salsa. Now that spring is here and summer isn’t too far behind, I’m sure I will be making this a lot! It usually doesn’t last very long when I do.

Years ago, when my kids were really little, I learned about fruit salsa at a Pampered Chef party. I believe they called it Apple Berry Salsa, and it was sweetened with jam and sugar. I loved it and started making it for my family quite a few times a year!

Typically, this salsa is served with cinnamon chips for scooping. To be honest, my family members tend to serve themselves a small bowl and eat it with a spoon! I will share my family’s version with you!

Fruit Salsa

  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • container of strawberries
  • 3 kiwis
  • 1 orange
  • 1 tbsp of brown sugar or sweetener of your choice

Let’s make it!

Wash all of your fruit. Peel the kiwi and apples and dice into similar sizes. Then, if you’re like me, eat the apple peels while you’re finishing the prep! Hull the strawberries and dice. Next I like to zest a bit of the orange peel over the top because I just think zest adds such a refreshing flavor! Cut orange in half and squeeze all the juice over the top of the diced fruit. I usually add a tbsp of brown sugar or coconut sugar or whatever strikes my fancy that day!

You don’t have to add any sweetener if you’d rather not. It will still be delicious!

Cinnamon Chips

  • 4-6 tortillas
  • cinnamon
  • sugar
  • water

I buy the small to medium sized tortillas and cut them into eight or more wedges with a pizza cutter. Arrange on a cookie sheet lined with parchment (for easier clean-up!) You can either lightly spritz them with water or use a pastry brush to brush water on them.

We always keep a shaker container of cinnamon sugar in our spice cabinet to put on toast, so I just sprinkle this over the wedges. If you’re looking to use less sugar you can just sprinkle cinnamon on them.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. Ovens vary so keep a close eye on them! Let cool and dig in to your yummy salsa!!

This recipe is very easy and always a hit wherever I bring it! It can be served as an appetizer OR as a dessert. It is delicious over vanilla ice cream or for breakfast mixed with your favorite yogurt. I found Gracie using it the other morning to add to her breakfast smoothie.

I hope you will try out this recipe because I know you will love it! Scroll down to the comment section and let me know how it goes!
