Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips

While I’ve definitely been showing the blueberry some love lately, I’ve actually been going through a phase with other fruits as well. Strawberries, apples, grapes, bananas – I’ve been craving them all. Years ago when my husband and I were on our honeymoon we had brunch at a small little cafe in downtown Waikiki. I had the most amazing french toast but even better was a fruit salsa they served with cinnamon sugar tortilla chips. They used fresh, in season fruits from the island and it was so unbelievably delicious that I licked the bowl clean! So what better way to indulge my fruit craving than with some homemade fruit salsa? My daughter had a friend over to play and they both had this for an afternoon snack and loved it too. This is a great dish to make for a potluck or get together. You can easily customize it to your tastes and use the fresh seasonal fruits that are available in your area. Enjoy!

Ingredients:


For the fruit salsa:

  • 1 pound strawberries, tops removed and diced
  • 2 kiwis, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 pint blueberries
  • 1 apple (a sweet variety like fuji, honey crisp or gala works well), cored and diced
  • additional fresh fruit of your choice
  • 3 tbsp fruit juice sweetened jelly or jam of your choice (I used Crofter’s Organic Strawberry Just Fruit Spread)
  • 1 tbsp raw honey (optional)

For the cinnamon sugar tortilla chips:

  • tortilla chips of your choice (a firmer chip works better)
  • raw coconut crystals
  • cinnamon
  • olive oil mister

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. In a small container mix together the cinnamon and coconut crystals. The ratio is really up to you. I usually do about 2 tbsp of coconut crystals and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
  3. Spread a single layer of tortilla chips out on a baking sheet and using an olive oil mister, lightly spray the chips with olive oil.
  4. Lightly sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over the tortilla chips. You want only a light dusting on the chips.
  5. Place in the oven for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and let the chips cool completely before serving.
  7. In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients for the fruit salsa. Serve immediately with your cinnamon sugar tortilla chips and enjoy!
