The recipe I am about to share with you may change your life a little bit. Once you make this and realize how simple and absolutely delicious it is, you will want to make it all the time. When you bring it to a cookout or baby shower, you may forever become known as “The Fruit Salsa Girl” because everyone will want to get the recipe from you or they’ll just ask you to bring it to every function you attend for the rest of your life. I speak from experience!
As the warmer weather arrives and fresh produce is more affordable and abundant, this recipe is always a go-to in our home. With just a few fresh ingredients, you’ll be able to whip up a delicious and healthy snack for your family and friends that is so refreshing and delectable! You can serve the Fruit Salsa with store-bought cinnamon- raisin bagel chips or pita chips. However, if you have the time and would like to do a kid-friendly cooking activity, follow my directions below for homemade cinnamon-sugar tortilla chips to serve alongside the fruit salsa.
Fresh Fruit Salsa
1 carton of fresh strawberries
2 Granny Smith apples
2 tablespoons of apple jelly
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
In a food processor, puree cleaned and trimmed strawberries. Do the same for the kiwi and apples (leave the skin on for the pretty green color). If you do not have a food processor, finely chop the fruit by hand. Place the fruit in a bowl, then add the jelly and sugar, stirring until fully combined. If time allows, refrigerate the salsa for a while and the consistency will thicken up nicely. This recipe is doubled very easily and keeps great in the refrigerator for a few days. Also, feel free to substitute or add other fruits to the concoction for great results. I like to add pineapple sometimes for a different twist!
Serve with Homemade Cinnamon-Sugar Tortillas!
