It’s summer. It’s hot. You’ve got company coming over. And the last thing you want to do is stand over a hot stove cooking. Chips and salsa always a good go-to food for guests, but why not shake things up a bit and be different. Try fruit salsa instead!
This fruit salsa is so easy to make and your family will love it – you won’t mind having it all the time.
Before you start, put the strawberries in the blender or food processor so they can thaw a bit while you chop.
Finely dice the mango, kiwis, and banana. You want small pieces so you get the salsa texture and look, and so you don’t end up with big chunks on your chip. If you want to make things easier, you can try the Pampered Chef manual food processor. Your pieces won’t be as uniform, but they’ll taste just fine.
In a blender or food processor combine the strawberries, which you’ve allowed to thaw a bit, the sugar, and the water. The sugar can be omitted, but it does cut some of the tart flavor of the strawberries. Puree until smooth. If the puree is too thick, just add a bit more water.
The last step is to combine your fruit and pureed strawberries. Gently stir them together and serve cold. I serve them with Stacy’s Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips – yum. You could also try plain pita chips or even lightly salted.
This fruit salsa is going to fly out of the bowl! If you have any leftovers – I never do – you can freeze it and break it out at your next party or on a hot day when you don’t feel like making dinner.
