Summer time means fresh fruit so why not enjoy that fresh fruit as a fruit salsa. Right now strawberries and raspberries are at an excellent price at most stores! The recipe utilizes both of those fruits along with apples and kiwi. So yummy! There are lots of recipes out there. I settled on making an adaptation of one I found on The Girl Who Ate Everything who found the recipe on Allrecipes. The recipe really is easy and would work well as part of a meal or as a fresh dessert.
I also wanted to let you know I have started another site called Day 2 Day with Sassy. As many of you know, I have a daughter who has many health issues. We have just found out she has two new problems that we are now facing. I am hoping to share my daughters story with the hope we may find others with similar circumstances that can give us ideas on what to do. I also hope to help others in the same boat we are in too. This site will share the day to day experiences that we encounter dealing with all of her needs.
Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
- 1 kiwi, peeled and diced
- 1 Golden Delicious apples – peeled, cored and diced
- 4 oz. raspberries
- 8 oz. of strawberries, diced
- 1 Tablespoons white sugar
- 1/2 Tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor (I used my strawberry freezer jam)
- 10 small flour tortillas (the fajita size that’s about 7 inches)
- 4 Tablespoons melted butter (or butter flavored cooking spray)
- 2 cups cinnamon sugar
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.
2.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3.Coat one side of each flour tortilla with melted butter (or butter flavored cooking spray). Sprinkle tortillas with desired amount of cinnamon sugar. Using a pizza cutter, cut each tortilla in half and then cut each half into 4 wedges. Arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. (if using cooking spray, spray tortillas again with cooking spray).
4.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. Best when made and eaten the same day otherwise the fruit gives off so too much juice and it gets runny. Serves around 5-6.
