Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips

It’s officially summer! And it is definitely making itself known, since it has been in the 90s here the last few days.  We hosted a graduation party at my house on Saturday and I wanted to make something sweet and refreshing.  I figured it was the perfect excuse to try this fruit salsa I found on Pinterest forever ago.  The best part is that it is totally customizable to whatever your fruit preferences are or what you have available (bonus points for buying local or from your own garden!).  It is so pretty and colorful. It was a huge hit at the party!

16 oz strawberries, diced

3 kiwis,chopped and diced

8 oz raspberries

In a large bowl combine all fruits.  Add sugars and preserves until evenly coated.  Cover and chill in fridge at least 15 minutes before serving.

Cinnamon Sugar Chips

10 8-inch tortillas (I used a mix of white and whole wheat)

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons cinnamon

melted butter (a little less than 1 stick)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Grease a large cookie sheet. 

In a medium size bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar.  Cut tortillas into 8 wedges.  Brush with melted butter and coat with cinnamon sugar.  Bake in a single layer for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Serve with fruit salsa.

Makes 80 chips
