Fruit salsa & Whole Wheat Cinnamon Chips

Last weekend's Bountiful Basket seemed to be lingering a little longer than normal. Typically we devour the fruit within a few days, but I had a few strawberries and kiwis left and a lot of apples. (I volunteered so I was able to get an extra large item which meant 2 bags of amazing apples. Insert your jealousy here: _________)
Anyway, I whipped this up Fruit Salsa as a way to enjoy the remains before they spoiled. I originally intended to eat it all with some freshly baked cinnamon chips, and to share it with the office. Instead I've hoarded it and taken to eating it by the spoonful.
It was good with the chips, amazing on its own and it will also be used on my Toasted Coconut Waffles which I'll be making this weekend.

By the way, this is so easy it really shouldn't be called a recipe.
Fresh Fruit Salsa
2 apples
10 strawberries
2 kiwis
1 small can crushed pineapple
Peel and chop apple and kiwi. Chop strawberries. Open can of pineapple. (I added that part to make the "recipe" longer.) Combine all fruit in a bowl and serve.
For the chips I took a whole grain tortilla, misted it with my olive oil spritzer and dusted it with cinnamon. They baked at 350 until they were crispy. Honestly I lost track of time because I was fighting Monkey away from the salsa. I'm pretty sure it was about 8 minutes, but be sure to watch them.

On an interesting note, I think I might be allergic to pineapple and Kiwi. It's kinda sad because I love them both so much. Have any of you developed food allergies like this?


  1. Yes you could become allergic to some things or just sensitive. But with this "recipe" , unless it's serious, I'd still eat it. Looks wonderful!!!!

  2. That salsa will get made a lot this summer, by yours truly! It would go well with so many different things. Like sangria... :)

  3. This looks so yummy! Definitely going to give it a try! I'm your newest follower! Love the blog!

  5. Your photo drew me in, and your recipe is too funny! This looks delicious and healthy!

    1. Thanks Anita! It's always hard to write a recipe that is essentially chop, combine, hide from the rest of the family.
      Now that I write that though, I feel compelled to make them their own batch.

  6. Oh boy...guess who is heading to the market today? I am definitely adding this recipe to tonight's meal. I thoroughly enjoyed this delicious post. I would love it if you could share this wonderful post at our WIW linky party. I hope you can join us.
