I love to serve fruit salsa for parties or as an after school snack for the kids. We also eat a lot of fruit kabobs and cream cheese fruit dip when we’re looking for a quick bite that’s relatively healthy.

This fruit salsa is so fun to make, and even more fun to eat! Typically when I think of fruit salsa, I think of the type that’s kind of a sweet and savory blend to put on top of chicken or in a taco. But this recipe is purely sweet, and it makes for a fun party snack or unique dessert offering.

How do you make fruit salsa?

The first step to making fruit salsa is to choose your fruit! I went with a combination of diced strawberry, kiwi, blueberries and raspberries. Other great options are mango, pineapple, apples, or grapes. The key is to make sure your fruit is the right size to fit onto the chips. I found really small raspberries and blueberries, but if your berries are larger you can cut them in half.

The fruit is tossed in a little honey and lime juice and then it’s ready to go! If you’re a mint fan, feel free to add a little thinly sliced mint into the mix. I typically just use mint as a garnish because I find that the flavor can be strong and not everyone enjoys it.

How do you make cinnamon chips?

This fruit salsa is delicious on it’s own, but it’s way better when you pair it with some homemade cinnamon chips! To make cinnamon chips, you’ll need to start with small flour tortillas which get cut into wedges. The tortillas are brushed with melted butter and topped with cinnamon sugar.

The chips bake to golden brown perfection. I want to warn you, these cinnamon tortilla chips are totally addictive so you may want to make a double batch.

Serve up your fruit salsa with a pile of cinnamon chips and watch it all disappear in minutes, it’s just that good.

This recipe is as simple as can be – all you have to do is dice the fruit, mix it with a honey lime juice, and serve! The longest part of the process is getting the fruit cut up. The cinnamon chips can be made a few days in advance if you’re the type that likes to plan ahead.

I’m definitely serving this fruit salsa at my next gathering, both kids and adults go crazy for it!
