Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips

Nothing says spring or summer like a huge bowl of fruit salsa. With this unusual weather we've had, I couldn't wait much longer before making it. Luckily the fruit crops seem to agree with me since they were all available in the grocery store and looking much fresher than usual for this time in April.

This was actually one of the first recipes I ever made, back when I would spend hours upon hours on allrecipes.com searching through all of the recipes and printing out tons that appealed to me. I believe the first copy I stuck in my recipe binder was printed way back in 2006.

I did alter the recipe a bit this time and honestly, I could leave the cinnamon sugar chips behind and eat it with a spoon!

Fruit Salsa Ingredients:
    • 1 pound strawberries, hulled and diced
    • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and diced
    • 3 kiwi, peeled and diced
    • 1/2 cup pineapple, diced
    • 1/2 cup blueberries
    • 1/2 cup raspberries
    • 1/2 cup blackberries
    • 1 tbs. sugar
    • 1 tbs. brown sugar
    • 4 tbs. sugar-free fruit preserves, any flavor
    Cinnamon Sugar Chip Ingredients:
    • 1 package flour tortillas
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    • butter flavored cooking spray 


Directions:
1. Combine all of the fruits together in a large bowl. Stir in the sugars and preserves until fruit is coated. Cover and refrigerate until ready to eat.
2. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with foil.
3. Cut tortillas into chip-sized wedges and place on the baking sheet. Spray with the cooking spray and then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the chips.
4. Bake for 8 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool to room temperature before serving with the fruit. Must be stored in an airtight container to keep overnight.

The picture and the ingredients say it all right? What more can I really say to tell you that this is delicious and you should definitely make it for your next party or just when you feel the need to chow down on some fruit!

  1. This sounds amazing, I think I'd have to cut the recipe down drastically though since it seems that no one else in my house really eats fruit. Thanks for posting such a great seasonal recipe!

    1. You too? I thought I was the only one who lived in a fruit lover-less house! :) It keeps for quite a few days in the fridge so you may not need to cut back too much.

  2. Oh my gosh, my kids would go crazy for this! I have a bunch of tortillas to use up from tacos yesterday, so I think I need to pick up some fruit and make this salsa!
