Sweet Chips and Fruit Salsa

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.

How to Make Fruit Salsa

Fruit salsa is so easy to make! I simply 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 to go with the fruit salsa, 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, fruit salsa! My salty craving was easily transitioned into a sweet version of chips and salsa. My sweet side always takes over:)

  1. Such a pretty snack 🙂 Love how beautiful fresh fruit is. Stacy’s chips are ADDICTING! Hope you had a nice weekend

  2. yum! this is one of my all time favorite treats. i usually make the chips with leftover tortillas but cinnamon sugar pitas would be great! and i haven’t tried that variety of Stacy’s yet — I’ll have to now! Looks tasty! Love the colors of your fruit salad!

  3. 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.

  4. brilliant. this is such a great idea! i can’t wait to make this for a pool party! i think i’ll attempt making homemade pita chips w/ cinnamon and sugar. 🙂

    …though that brand you buy sounds and looks delicious!

  5. I have had a serious craving for fruit salsa and cinnamon chips. It’s not bad to have just this for dinner, right? Nah, I think I’m going for it!

  6. 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!

  7. You are in BIG trouble with me Maria!! Now you’ve got me totally craving this. and I’m not feeling lazy today, so I may just head off to the store. Like, right now!

  8. 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.

  9. 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??

    1. 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:)

  10. 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.

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

  11. 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

  12. YUM!!! The first time I had the cinnamon pita chips I didn’t like them. But a month or so ago I tasted them again (I stole one from a party some of the nurses were having!) and loved them. I bet they go great with this dip!

  13. I have made these before! I have made the chips though, just with pita bread sliced into chip size and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar (maybe we put a teeny bit butter on top? cant remember….) and we made fruit salsa but with slightly different fruits, thanks for the reminder of this, I am going to make sure we make it for my graduation party two weekends from now, delish!

  14. I’m totally in the same boat as you — all my teeth are sweet! I’ve never been a chip snacker; I always reach for fruit instead. Or, on days like today, a warm chocolate chip cookie from the bakery down the street…

  15. What! Seriously this is ingenious i love it! What a fantastic recipe thanks so much for sharing.

  16. Awesome! I have three tiny boys who would love something like this for a snack. It would be nice to have something that I wouldn’t feel guilty about munching on with them, too! Really great idea.

  17. i love this! so creative :D. and in the silliest of ways… i can’t believe you commented on my blog! 🙂 i come to your blog all the time off of tastespotting and love all your pictures and recipes :).

  18. This looks SO good. I too have a penchant for sweets. Salty’s fine but sugar makes me happy. 😉

    I bet this would great served at a party! It’d be a neat alternative to a regular fruit salad.

  19. made this as part of a multiple-salsa spread at a party on friday…altered to fit what fruits were available, used blue/strawberry, kiwi, pomegranate, tangerine, and lemon & lime juice, as well as mint. it was SO good! it went fast. thanks so much for the inspiration! also: for those who live near a trader joe’s, they make a sweet pita snack that works well with this salsa.
