Tips and Tricks

  • 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.

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

Of course it’s delicious with the cinnamon chips but it also goes well with a variety of other items:

  • You could also serve this fruit salsa on top of pork or fish.
  • Try adding it to baked tacos or chicken tacos 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.

    1. You can buy them dried in a jar in the spice aisle…or I’ve used fresh mint, chopped really fine too!

  1. Beautiful salsa Aimee 😀 I have trouble chopping food so tiny, you have better skills than me. 🙂

    Thank you so much for submitting this to my monthly recipe collection for July – Cookout Food.

    The new theme for August will be posted tomorrow, and I hope you will submit again. 🙂

  2. This would be so good with some cinnamon chips and it’s so healthy to boot. Thanks so much for sharing this at Sweets for a Saturday.

  3. 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).

  4. This looks great! I’m always on the lookout for fresh summer recipes. I think this is a keeper.

  5. That salsa looks delicious! I can see why everyone would gobble it up! I wanted to invite you to come by and show of your fruit salsa at These Chicks Cooked Recipe Spotlight today. Have a blessed day, Aimee 🙂

    @Holly- thanks, it’s perfect too because strawberries are in season right now!

  7. Looks and sound like a very delicious fruit salsa! I would love to try it soon. Lucky you got to go camping! I miss camping a lot! Sure it is a great dish to bring to the camp site. Love those vibrant colors from the fruit and mint. Thank you for sharing.
