I’m a big fan of fresh fruit. I leave the fruit out on the table in a decorative bowl so the kids will feel free to take and eat all they want. That doesn’t always happen, but when it does, it’s glorious! (in my sing songy voice) Yes, I just said glorious. I know, I’m sounding like my mom now. Sheesh!
This Summer Fruit Salsa is amazingly yummy and amazingly simple. I’m not kidding, if you can cut fruit, you can make this salsa. And if you can’t cut fruit, have a mom or friend help you, cause you’ll want some of this. My mouth is watering right now as I write this post because I’m remembering how much I LOVE this salsa. And the cinnamon chips? Well, let’s just say, you will never want to buy cinnamon chips from the store again. Ah-Mazing! Have I said that already? 😉
So let’s start with the salsa. I went with more simple fruits, but you can use any of your favorite fruits and I’m sure it will turn out just as amaz- oops! I almost said it again, good. It will turn out just as good.
This is what I used:
- 1 pound fresh strawberries
- 1/2 pineapple
- 2 Gala, Fuji or Washington apples
- 1/2 pound blueberries
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Wanna know how to make it now? Okay. Cut all the fruit into bite sized pieces, stir in the lemon juice after you add the apples, stir in the sugar and you are done. DONE! Easy Peasy.
Now the Cinnamon Chips require a few more steps then the salsa, so I have some detailed pictures for you.
Here’s what you need:
- 6 uncooked tortillas cooked according to package directions
- Vegetable oil for spritzing
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon (or more to taste)
Now take a baking sheet and spray it with Oil.
What do I use to spray it with oil you ask? One of these of course:
I got this one at Wal-Mart I think, but here is one you can order through Amazon (affiliate link).
Then you will spray both sides of one of your cooked tortillas with oil.
Mix together your cinnamon and sugar.
Then sprinkle each side of your tortillas HEAVILY with the cinnamon sugar mixture. A lot of it will fall off after baking.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until browned and crisp.
Cut with a pizza cutter (one of my favorite kitchen tools) into 8 triangles before they cool too much.
Then let them cool completely then use them as scoops for the fruit salsa. SO YUMMY!
What kinds of fruit are you going to try in your salsa?
