Fruit Salsa

Fruit Salsa

This recipe is a great summer treat or a dish to bring to a summer party. I brought it to the beach for our annual end of the summer beach party. It is so easy to make, all your really need to do is chop everything up!!

1 pound of strawberries

2 granny smith apples

1 Lemon

1/2 pound Raspberries

2 kiwis

3 tablespoons of preserves (I skipped this part)

1 tablespoon of brown sugar

Chop everything up and add it together!  Except for the lemon, juice the lemon and add to mixture. I didn’t skin the apples, and I found I did not need the perserves what so ever, the fruit created a lot of juice on its own.

The recipe also comes with home made pita cinnamon chips. To be honest I like the store bought kind better, BUT I made these anyways.

Spread butter on some pita chips, throw them in the oven under a broil, until they are brown. You can add cinnamon and sugar before or after, I did both and didnt every discover what I liked better, maybe after better.

I found more ways to use the fruit salsa, because it makes such a huge batch! The next morning I made waffles,  & used this salsa as topping! It was much tastier than plain strawberries!!! I loved it!

The next day after that we took the rest and put in lemonade. This was so good too!! I am sure there are plenty more things you can do with it, its such a versatile dish. I even ate it with a spoon!

Fresh Healthy Bean Salsa

This is a great Salsa Recipe,  I think this recipe came from my Aunt Rosemary, but my mom has been making it for years, and not sure where my Aunt got it from, but its a great recipe and should be shared!

Nothing about this recipe is technical, because nothing in life should be. I have no exact measurements, and this whole recipe can be altered on what you like and what you don’t like, so let me know they way you make it, or like it!

Fresh Salsa:

Heres what I used on my latest batch, and it was a HUGE one. If you only cooking for a family, make half of this, but if your taking it to a party use these measurements.

  • 2 Cans of Black Beans ( you could use white or red as well)
  • 1 Can of Whole Sweet Corn
  • Half of Green Pepper
  • Half of Red Pepper
  • 1/4 of a Sweet Onion
  • One Bunch of Fresh Cilantro
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • Juice of One Lime
  • Salt
  • Pepper

First Rinse Beans and Corns and place in your bowl. Chop the Peppers, Onions, and Tomatoes into small cubes and mix in with beans and corn. Chop Cilantro add. Juice Lime pour in, may use more or less according to taste, and add salt and pepper to taste.

I like my salsa refrigerated before I eat it! Enjoy!
