Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

This fruity, juicy, tangy, cinnamony, sweet, crunchy combo is the perfect snack or dessert for those who don’t want lots of sweet stuff or are watching their weight. My mom especially loved this and actually made more cinnamon chips later on to supplement the fruit salsa.

If you’re looking for an alternative to a regular, cookie-cutter *sorry for the dessert humor* fruit salad, look no further! The original recipe (which was barely altered) can be found here.

Skill Level: Basic

Ingredients:

For the salsa:

  • 2 granny smith apples
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 kiwis
  • 1 lb of strawberries
  • 1/2 lb of raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of preserves

For the chips:

  • 10 flour tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Tips:

  • Leftovers are just as good out of the fridge as they are at room temperature! Don’t store the chips in the fridge…
  • The chips are simple to whip up so feel free to replace the eaten ones until you run out of salsa.
  • Don’t be like me: peel the apples before you slice them.

Instructions:

For the salsa:

  1. Zest the lemon and set aside.
  2. Peel and chop the apples as finely as possible (it’s okay to have bigger chunks if you’re okay with very chunky salsa). Squeeze some lemon juice over the apples and mix the concoction together.
  3. Cut up the rest of the fruit as small as possible (you can leave the raspberries whole, they’ll fall apart on their own which is super convenient).
  4. Mix all the fruit together and allow it to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving. My family really enjoyed leftovers straight out of the fridge too.

For the chips:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine the cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
  3. Take 3 tortillas at a time and spray each side with the cooking spray. Stack them and use a pizza cutter to cut them into triangles.
  4. Sprinkle each side with the cinnamon sugar.
  5. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 8-11 minutes (until crisp).
