Where are my fruit lovers?

This recipe is a hit for parties or summer gatherings. Plus it takes minimal effort to throw together. Those cinnamon chips? I'll tell you how to make them, but the fruit salsa can totally be eaten without them or with store-bought tortilla chips. No judgment.

Fruit salsa is another one of my grandma's go-to appetizers. She calls it apple salsa but there are also kiwis, an orange and strawberries in there. It's probably a go-to recipe for her because we all love it so much!

Minimal sugar is added (and you can even play around with less if you want, or dare I say coconut sugar?) so it also is pretty darn healthy even though it's sweet.

Even though I seem to put apple in everything, it's by far not my favorite fruit. Kiwi and strawberry are pretty high up on that list. Blueberries might be the ultimate fav.

Actually, now I'm regretting not adding blueberries to the bowl. It would have added another color of the rainbow, too.

To make the cinnamon chips, you literally just cut a package of flour tortillas into little squares and sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar mixture. It's even pretty good with just cinnamon, so here's a place you can save yourself on the sugar if you wanted.

Use those tortilla chips as dippers or pile up the fruit salsa on top.

Without the chips I guess it would just be a fruit salad, huh? Fruit salsa sounds so much fancier.

Ingredients

For the fruit salsa (no-bake):

  • 2 apples
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
  • 2 kiwis , peeled and chopped
  • 1 orange , peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple butter or apple jelly

For cinnamon chips (bake):

  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar (grandma's recipe calls for 1/4 cup, play around if more sweetness is desired)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Chop the apples and put in a medium bowl. Add lemon juice to prevent browning. 
  • Chop remaining fruit (strawberries, kiwi, orange) and add to the apples along with the brown sugar and apple jelly. Stir to combine.
  • Chill in refrigerator.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F for the cinnamon chips. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.
  • Lightly brush tortillas with water (so the cinnamon and sugar will stick). Cut or tear tortillas into squares. 
  • Spread out tortilla on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, careful not to overlap too much. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over tortillas.
  • Bake for 7-8 minutes or until crispy.
  • Serve fruit with cinnamon chips. 

Notes

Can make fruit salsa several hours ahead of time if desired to let marinate in the refrigerator. Will not keep much longer than a day - if you have leftovers you can freeze them, and/or add with ice to make a smoothie!

This looks so good! And I always love a fun side that is also not too heavy, but that kids and adults will still love!

Oh yum! What a sweet (aha no pun intended...) idea. This sounds like the perfect healthy snack/dessert. I'd totally eat a whole bowl of it myself!
