Fruit Salsa

My Mom's Fruit Salsa recipe is one of my favorite recipes ever. It reminds me of summer, and has a fresh, clean taste. And paired with homemade cinnamon chips, it's heavenly. You can put lots of different things in it, from peaches, to raspberries, to mango, and it tastes pretty awesome. But my favorite kind is the original.

Pint of strawberries
two cups worth of diced fresh pineapple
small bunch of cilantro
tablespoon of cider vinegar
Half a diced red onion

hull strawberries and dice finely. dice pineapple finely. dice red onion finely. Mix together in bowl. chiffonade the cilantro, and mix into salsa. put in cider vinegar. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge. Let sit in the fridge for about an hour (the longer it sits, the more the flavors will marry together and get delicious)

Cinnamon chips

two packs of small flour tortillas
half a stick of butter
Cinnamon sugar (I always have it around, and never really measure- it's one part cinnamon to one part sugar)

Hardware: Baking tray, pastry brush, knife

preheat oven to 425. melt butter in a bowl. lay tortilla down, brush with butter, and then sprinkle with a generous amount of cinnamon sugar. once you've stacked ten of these, take a knife and cut into four, cross wise, so you end up with chips. spread evenly on baking tray, and bake until lightly browned. repeat until all tortillas are baked.

I may be biased, but the best way to enjoy fruit salsa is with a glass of Kate and Potter's Sangria, which I did on memorial day.
