Fruity Salsa

One of my very best girlfriends has been on best rest for nearly a month now. She has two to three more weeks to go and I've been trying to spend at least a couple hours laying in bed with her a week. I secretly really love it, as I never get to just lay in bed or sit around, so it's like a vacation to me. To her, it's misery.

Today I brought her fruit salsa....a recipe which she gave me when we were in college. There is a lot of chopping involved, which if you don't like chopping, it's no fun. If you do, then you'll love it. Using a good knife for chopping makes it go faster too, but if you're like me you like to keep the knives a little dull......had a bad experience with a brand new sharp knife a while back......

Fruit salsa is honestly one of my favorite things to have in the spring/ summer. It's sooo pretty and colorful to look at and it's de-li-cious!!! Plus it always surprises people if they don't know what expect because it's sweet.

Fruit Salsa
1 crate strawberries
4 medium apples
2 kiwi
1 orange
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoon jelly/ jam of your choice. (I almost always use rhubarb)

Chop strawberries, apples and kiwi into tiny little pieces and put in medium sized bowl. Squeeze orange and all the pulp you can get into the chopped fruit. Add the brown sugar and jelly and mix. Viola! Fruit Salsa!

To make the chips, just cut tortillas (homemade or store-bought) into triangles. Sprinkle with water (it's easiest to use a little hand sprayer) and then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 250 for about 10 minutes. I like mine to be a little soft, so if you like them harder, bake them longer.

I came upon your site months ago and find myself coming back again and again to look at your photos. You are truly talented, and some of the recipes have become family favorites...especially the zucchini bread!
