I love making homemade salsa. From your classic pico de gallo salsa to watermelon peach salsa, salsa is so easy to make and diverse to use.

You can easily add in additional ingredients or take things out that you don’t like as much. Want more spice or want to keep it sweet? With salsa recipes, you can make it exactly how you want it.

This fresh fruit salsa is a spin on your classic salsa. It’s not a savory/sweet salsa either. Just an all-sweet salsa that’s yummy as a dessert, appetizer, or healthy snack.

And can we talk about the colors of this fruit salsa for a minute? Food that is bright and colorful just looks pretty. This great fruit salsa recipe is no different, full of color and flavor that is so good.

I’ve included how I made it as well as the homemade cinnamon chips. You can change out some of the fruit for other types if you’d like. And serving fruit salsa is not limited to sugared tortilla chips! There are many other foods that pair well with fruit salsa, including meats and crackers.

Try this fruit salsa with the homemade cinnamon chips and discover just how amazing and easy this fresh fruit salsa is. It’s perfect as an appetizer snack or to bring to your next party!

Tips for Making Fruit Salsa

  • Dice your fruit into tiny pieces. This helps make it more of a salsa consistency and not like a fruit salad.
  • Using fresh fruit makes this recipe so juicy and refreshing. You could use canned pineapples or mangoes if you don’t have fresh ones.
  • You can also buy cinnamon chips if you don’t want to make them. Stacy’s cinnamon pita chips are perfect with this fruit salsa recipe.
  • You can change out the type of fruit you use for this to accommodate your tastes. Kiwis, pineapple, or berries would also work well.

How to serve Fruit Salsa

This fresh fruit salsa is perfect for a summer picnic, barbeque, pool party, or dinner in the backyard!

Fruit Salsa Dip is of course delicious with the cinnamon chips but it also goes well with a variety of other items:

  • Dip graham crackers into the salsa for a sweet treat. Cinnamon graham crackers would be a good substitute for the cinnamon chips.
  • You could also serve this fruit salsa on top of pork or fish. This strawberry salsa turned out so good on my easy tilapia recipe.
  • Try adding it to baked tacos or chicken if you like that savory/sweet combination.
  • Add a scoop of this salsa to vanilla ice cream or yogurt.
  • Top angel food cake with it for a yummy summer dessert.

How Long Does Fruit Salsa Keep?

You can store this fruit salsa in the refrigerator for up to three days. Store it in an airtight container. After three days or so, the juices from the fruit will start to release and the fruit will become more mushy.

    Fruit salsa – one of our favorite summertime treats. I use a combo of strawberries, crushed raspberries, pineapple, kiwi, mango or papaya, peaches, and apple (for crunch) and a bit of sugar to draw out the juices – as you can see, a little more labor intensive, as all fruits should be finely chopped (preferably by hand).
    For chips, I spray flour tortillas w/veg. spray, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (only necessary on one side), cut into triangles, spread on a cookie sheet and bake @ 350 for 5-10 min (watch after 5 minutes, so they don’t burn).

  10. Light, fresh, simple…and simply wonderful! Can’t wait to try this one!
