Your Choice Fruit Salsa and Crisps

I saw this recipe on spendwithpennies.com and adapted it to make a smaller amount and to use almost any kind of fresh fruit.  The fruit should be diced into ½-inch cubes to make it easy to scoop up with the delicious cinnamon crisps.  A lovely, summertime, light dessert.

YOUR CHOICE FRUIT SALSA AND CRISPS

Cinnamon Crisps:
4 10-inch flour tortillas
Cooking spray
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Fruit Salsa:
4 cups of assorted fruit cut into ½ inch cubes (strawberries, blueberries, apple, pineapple, banana, peach, kiwi, etc.) – your choice

1 Tblsp. lemon juice
1 Tblsp. fruit preserves or jam (I used my homemade blueberry jam)

To make cinnamon crisps:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Combine cinnamon and sugar
Spray each tortilla on top with cooking spray and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar.

Cut each tortilla into 6 wedges and place on baking sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes until light brown and crisp (watch carefully so the wedges don’t burn).

To make the salsa:
Combine the prepared fruit with the lemon juice and preserves/jam, tossing lightly.

  1. I love fresh fruit salad but I’ve never made Salsa – I’m going to do it. I just got some tortillas at the store and I’m also going to make a few of these cinnamon sugar crisps. Love it all!

  2. That looks great. It isn’t too high in carbs and sugar, but naturally sweet and wonderful. One of my favorite tomato salsas that I canned was one I added peaches and pineapple to, along with banana peppers. It was so yummy all together.

  3. I was thinking that perhaps if I spent less time going out that perhaps I could turn out quality posts like yours. Then it dawned on me that that simply isn’t necessary. Why should I expend energy writing when I can simply borrow from your posts?

    1. Thank you for the nice words. I don’t mind if you borrow, but wouldn’t it be wonderful to put your own words, thoughts and ideas online?
