Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips

I usually don’t crave salty foods, I prefer sweets. I don’t have A sweet tooth, I think ALL of my teeth are sweet:) Chips and salsa are an exception-that is my “go to” salty snack. I love Josh’s mango salsa-it is my favorite. I love the sweetness the mango brings to the mix-see I try to sneak in sweets wherever I can:) The other day I was in the mood for chips and salsa, but didn’t have any fresh cilantro. I was too lazy to run to the store, so I made a batch of fruit salsa instead.

I combined strawberries, kiwi, blackberries, and blueberries. I added a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a tiny drizzle of agave nectar and stirred everything together. I was going to make homemade pita chips, but again my laziness got in the way, so I opened a bag of Stacy’s Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips. Have you tried these? They are heavenly, be careful though-they are very addicting.

So what started as a salty craving, ended in a new favorite sweet snack. My salty craving was easily transitioned into a sweet version of chips and salsa. My sweet side always takes over:) Fruit salsa is easy to prepare and a beautiful dish to share. I think this will be my staple summer party food-perfect for picnics, bbq’s, and pool parties. And don’t forget about Cinco de Mayo-get the party started with fruit salsa!

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips

Ingredients:

8 Strawberries, diced
2 Kiwi, diced
1/4 cup Blueberries
1/4 Blackberries, cut in half
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Drizzle of agave nectar

Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips-for serving

Directions:

1. In a medium bowl, stir together the strawberries and kiwi. Gently add in the blueberries and blackberries. Stir carefully so you don't turn the salsa purple.

2. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the fruit. Add a tiny drizzle of agave nectar to bring out the sweetness in the fruit. Stir carefully.

3. Serve with cinnamon sugar pita chips.

*Note-the fruit salsa is best eaten the day it is made.

    Perfect! Aren’t Stacy’s totally addicting? Goodness, there should be a law. Well, maybe not. I also love fruit salsa–it’s so refreshing, and also guilt free.

    now this sounds so good. i’ll have to save this for when it’s 100 degrees outside and humid (we all know how the humidity takes the appetite away)

    I wish I only had one kind of tooth or the other, but it seems I’ll eat antying sweet or salty (or better yet, salty and sweet together). Your salsa looks so pretty in that dish and those chips look addictive!

    this is so yummy! i served something like this at a shower, and it was the first thing to disappear. i love those big blackberries in there, mmmm.

    Traci — April 26, 2010 @ 3:25 pm

    P.S. My mom just told me that when she makes it, she blends the fruit together in a blender until it forms a “salsa” look to it. She says it helps scoop it onto the chip better. What’s your take on this??

    • twopeas replied: — April 26th, 2010 @ 4:27 pm

      Traci-I personally like a chunky salsa. I also like to keep it colorful, so I mix it gently. The blueberries and blackberries want to turn it purple, but I don’t let them:) The blender version is probably tasty too though:)

    Jenny — April 26, 2010 @ 4:18 pm

    What a beautiful salsa! It looks like a great way to impress people at BBQs – they won’t have to know how easy it is to make! Thanks for sharing.

    • twopeas replied: — April 26th, 2010 @ 4:28 pm

      Thanks everyone. We hope you enjoy this salsa all summer long. I know we will be making it often!

    I think your sweet tooth is related to my sweet tooth cause this looks terrific! I get sweet and salty cravings, when that happens I take pretzels and dip them into my favorite yogurt and that does the trick!! LOL
