Fruit Salsa recipe
With Fourth of July right around the corner, I know there will be lots of backyard BBQ's happening. You may need to bring a side dish and let's be honest, no one wants to eat anything too "heavy" when it's warm outside. This fruit salsa recipe is a great side dish and it's refreshing.
Fruit Salsa recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything:
· 2 kiwis, peeled and diced
· 2 Golden Delicious apples - peeled, cored and diced
· 8 ounces raspberries
· 1 (16 oz carton) of strawberries, diced
· 2 tablespoons white sugar (more or less to taste)
· 1 tablespoon brown sugar (more or less to taste)
· 3 tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor (I used strawberry)
· 10 (10 inch) flour tortillas (or use Stacy's cinnamon chips or cinnamon graham crackers)
· melted butter or butter flavored cooking spray
· 1 cup white sugar
· 2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, apples, raspberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar and fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes. This is best made the same day and not too far ahead of time so your apples don't start browning and the fruit gives off so too much juice and it gets runny.
This salsa can also be serve with cinnamon graham crackers or cinnamon pita chips. Otherwise you can make homemade Cinnamon Chips and they are best eaten day of:
2. For the Cinnamon Chips:
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
4. Coat one side of each flour tortilla with melted butter or butter flavored cooking spray. Sprinkle tortillas with desired amount of cinnamon sugar. Cut into wedges and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Spray again with cooking spray (not necessary if using melted butter).
5. Bake in the preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes. Repeat with any remaining tortilla wedges. Allow to cool approximately 15 minutes. Serve with chilled fruit mixture.
