Salsa doesn’t have to have tomatoes in it! Try this refreshing fruit salsa with cantaloupe, pineapple, fresh strawberries, kiwi, and mint! Enjoy it as an appetizer or a fun dessert for kids of all ages! Dig in with these crispy pita chips lightly dusted with cinnamon and sugar with a hint of bourbon.
Spring has finally sprung in Georgia and the pollen has started to subside. The weather is in the perfect zone right now. Cool and breezy 70s during the day and 50s at night so you can keep the windows open all the time. Time for fresh air to come through the house and blow out all the stale winter air! Perfect for Spring cleaning. Or sitting outside with friends, with a cocktail in your hand, and just talk about all the things that we are planning on cleaning but not actually getting to.
Because we are too busy enjoying just being outside!
One more thing that is perfect right now, the fruit!
Going to the farmer’s market now means you can find ripe strawberries (cheap) and lots of fresh herbs. I can’t grow them because of my black thumb, so I get mine from the market, plant nursery, or my friend Chrissy’s backyard. Don’t worry, she knows I steal some. She has more than she can use anyway. Don’t want to waste it!!
This salsa is a great twist on regular tomato or other vegetable salsa. Light and refreshing, it’s perfect for a day outside. Great for a bridal or baby shower – you know that wedding season is coming up! You can serve this as an appetizer, a dessert that is sure to get the kids to eat their fruit and not miss the sugar, or a topping for your breakfast yogurt. If you are looking for more dips instead, my Margarita Dip and my Nutter Butter Dip with apples is dessert with fruit too!
Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Bourbon Sugar Pita Chips
Salsa doesn't have to have tomatoes in it! Try this refreshing fruit salsa with cantaloupe, pineapple, fresh strawberries, kiwi, and mint! Enjoy it as an appetizer or a fun dessert for kids of all ages! Dip into it with these crispy pita chips lightly dusted with cinnamon and sugar with a hint of bourbon.
For the Salsa
- 1 cup fresh cantaloupe , diced small
- 1 cup fresh strawberries , diced small
- 1 cup fresh pineapple , diced small
- 1 cup fresh kiwi , diced small
- 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves , chopped small
For the Pita Chips
- 4 whole pitas
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon raw sugar (turbinado or brown)
- 1 tablespoon bourbon
Preheat oven to 375F.
Slice pitas into wedges like you are cutting a pizza. I got 6 wedges out of each one.
Brush all the wedges with olive oil.
Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Mix the bourbon with the sugar and let sit for a minute.
Sprinkle the bourbon sugar on the wedges.
Bake for 7 minutes or until crispy and slightly browned. Watch them carefully as you don't want them to burn.
While the pita chips are baking, mix all your fruit together in a bowl and add the mint.
Cool the chips and serve with the salsa
