Healthy summer snack
This fruit salsa is one of my family’s favorite snacks of all time…especially in the summer! The cinnamon tortilla chips paired with the fruit salsa is the PERFECT combination and the flavors together are out of this world! It doesn’t take long to make at all and tastes absolutely fantastic. I especially love to make this dish in the summer time because all of the produce is in season and it all tastes so amazing and fresh. Plus it’s a healthy snack that my kids LOVE. That’s always a win in my book!
Favorite fruit to use
I like to use lots of fresh berries because the combination tastes really great together, but you could honestly add in pretty much any fruit and it would still be delicious! Look for whichever varieties are in season at the moment. That way you’ll be using the most ripe, juicy and flavorful options.
Tips for the best fruit salsa
- Wash your fruit. Before you start chopping, make sure to give your fruit a nice scrub first. Then set it on a paper towel to dry completely.
- Finely chop. When chopping the fruit, make sure to dice it into small, evenly sized pieces. That way you get the most fruit in each bite!
- Let marinate. After mixing the salsa together, let it chill for about 15 minutes in the refrigerator before serving. This gives the flavors time to marinate together and taste extra delicious.
- Cinnamon chips. These homemade cinnamon tortilla chips take this salsa to the next level. Simply coat the tortillas with the cinnamon and sugar mixture, cut into pieces and bake for 8-10 minutes. So simple and full of flavor.
- Extra flavors. To boost the flavor even more, try adding a squeeze of fresh lime juice or mix in some fresh basil or mint from the garden for a more earthy taste.
How to store
This dish is best served within 1 day of preparing, so that the fruit stays crisp and flavorful. You can absolutely still store leftovers, however the fruit may get a bit more soggy than when served fresh. Just make sure to give it a big stir before enjoying, so that you get the most flavor out of all of the juices.
