Here's a tip to save time chopping: Buy an egg slicer (available on the kitchen aisle of most grocery stores for about $4). It works great on strawberries!!! Just put Them in and slice them and then turn the other way and slice again. It dices them perfectly. I also use it for other soft fruits (kiwi, peaches etc. Just peel & cut into chunks first & use it the same way as with strawberries.Read More

Very tasty! I cut the sugars in half, used plain ol' grape jelly and added blueberries...YUM. After I sprayed & sugared the chips, I stuffed them in my mini muffin tins so that they had the "scoop" affect & everybody raved. I also doubled the chip amount, they went quick! The salsa would also be good with angel food cake or even pound cake, mmmmmm. Thanks Annie!
Have made several times, all with rave reviews. Don't have time to make the tortilla chips??? Substitute them with cinnamon graham crackers.
WOW...USED GRANNY SMITH APPLES,STRAWBERRIES,RASBERRIES,KIWI,AND PLUMS.STRAWBERRY PRESERVES GAVE IT A NICE COLOR.MADE THE NIGHT BEFORE.BOTH FRUIT AND CHIPS WERE STILL FRESH.(COULD MAKE 2 NIGHTS BEFORE)
I made this recipe for a school function of about 30 people. Only 3 or 4 enjoyed the salsa. I added some fresh shredded coconut as well as mango. Almost everyone loved the cinnamon tortillas. To make my life easier I sprayed the cut tortillas with the cooking spray, threw them all into a gallon size zippered storage bag, and then added my cinnamon and sugar mix. After a few shakes all the chips were coated on both sides and I just layed them on the pans. Worked a lot easier than doing it one at a time. Overall, it was a miniature version of a fruit salad. But the chips were good without the "salsa".
I took this as an appetizer to a "cooking circle"--it won best dish that night! The girls could NOT stop eating it. Everyone LOVED this--especially the salsa. I too, would probably cut the sugar in the recipe. I used apricot preserves and everyone thought it added just the right touch. Very fun recipe and unusual! I can't wait to make it again!!
I have made this for a family party, a tailgate party & my company picnic. It receives RAVE reviews every time. I've lost count of the people who have requested the recipe. Young, old, everyone loves this recipe! I've substituted frozed mixed berries for the fresh and that worked pretty well and cut down on the prep time. I also double the chips, because so many people eat those alone.
Took this to a ladies luncheon at my church and it was devoured! My husband asked me to make it again because there weren't any leftovers for him! Just a tip...Tostito's now has available the flour tortilla chips, you can just heat them up on a cookie sheet in the oven and the oils will reappear, which will allow the cinnamon-sugar to stick to the chip...just toss the chips and sugar together in a large ziploc bag it will save you a lot of time!
Wow! This needs to come with a warning: Highly Addictive! This was a beautiful combination of colors and flavors. And, what's great about this is it's low fat and good for you too. No matter what assortment of fresh fruit you use it's bound to be good so use your favorites and use the recipe as a guide. I used a combination of apples, strawberries, peaches, and kiwi. I left out the sugar as the fruit has enough of that on it's own. For the preserves, again use your favorite. I chose seedless raspberry. For the cinnamon chips I used reduced fat tortillas and cut them with a pizza cutter which made things a lot easier. I sprayed them with butter flavored Pam and sprinkled them with the cinnamon sugar. I baked them at 350 for 8 minutes flipped them and baked them for another 7 minutes. They were crispy, sweet and delicious - next time I would double the amount because they went fast. This got a lot of compliments not only for taste, but for creativity. I'll definitely make this again - great recipe!
HELPFUL TIPS AFTER READING ALL THE REVIEWS: If you're in a crunch, try some cinnamon wheat thins or cinnamon pita chips down the snack aisle. The tortillas tend to take some time to make, so I'd get started on them first so you're salsa doesn't get all soggy if you're making a big batch of chips! And use 1C sugar&1tsp cinnamon. They're addicting & can see why so many people (including myself) eat them "as is." I wasn't sure I'd believe that you don't have to over drench your tortillas in cinnamon, but it's true. One quick dip & there's plenty of yummyness. I've NEVER had any problems w/the apple (fuji) browning, but if you do ...dip the slices in lemon juice to prevent it. I just eye the amount I want to add for everything to suit the number of people we are feeding. There's no need for adding sugar b/c the fruit preserves & the fruit adds enough flavor. I have better luck w/finding fresh blueberries than I do raspberries, and I prefer them! People are always impressed with this dish & you really are a hero to all the hungry tummies, so thanks for posting this recipe!
I took this dish to a tropical theme birthday party and it was a hit. I made the chips the day before. I first cut the tortillas in a triangle, laid them side by side on a parchment lined cookie sheet. I then sprayed them with spray butter and sprinkled them with the cinnamon and sugar . When baking, make sure the chips are crisp before removing from oven, in my opinion it is better for them to be over-crisp then under crisp. The other thing I did is use fresh pineapple, hollowing out the center and using the shell as a dish.
This was really tasty. I brought it to a potluck, and everyone wanted the recipe. The key is small pieces so it really is like salsa!
This appetizer was so well received! Everyone loved it. I was very pleased. I cut 8-inch tortillas into quarters with scissors, brushed both sides of each triangle with melted butter, and tossed them all in a large ziploc bag with a cup of cinnamon and sugar for a good shaking. Some came out less covered than others -- great for different tastes among the guests. Tip: Using a muffin tray instead of a baking sheet shaped the triangles into scoops! Perfect for dipping into the salsa.
This recipe is wonderful. I changed it a bit to fit in to my diet plan and make the recipe smaller. I used 2 kiwi's, 1 apple, 1 cup strawberries, and 1/2 cup frozen berry mix. I also sub'd splenda and light sugar free strawberry preserves. I used 98% fat-free tortillas and a cinnamon and splenda blend for the chips. I also pre-cut the tortillas with a pizza cutter and dip them in to the cinnamon mix. I cooked each batch of chips 5 min on each side. This made of a wonderfully sweet, filling, and low-fat snack. I will absolutely make this again. Thanks Ann!!!! :)
This was delicious. I did cut the sugars and I felt my salsa was a bit tart, although those eating it did not agree. I dipped my apples in lime juice to avoid browning and found a slightly different recipe for the chips. Brush them lightly with water, place on foil lined cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray, sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar and bake 4-5 min at 500 degrees. These chips turned out better for me. Kids and husband enjoyed the left overs. This was great, thanks for sharing.
How do I love this? Let me count the ways... let's see, I've made it 3 times in the past week. I cannot say enough good things about this. The chips taste good with honey as well; in fact, I prefer them to sopapillas you get in a restaurant. I've been using the frozen berry mix with various other fruits, and my latest preserves has not been preserves, but 3 T of apricot pie filling. I also add some light cool whip to the salsa/salad which brings it to a new high. Thank you so much, Annie, for the recipe!
This was fantastic! I'd had something similar before, and it was everything I was hoping for. I will say that I don't think the time listed for the recipe takes chopping time into account. I ended up doubling the amount of chips that I made, and because I made sure to only put a single layer on the pan, it took me a couple of hours to make two batches. It was well worth it though. I took the advice of other reviewers and shook them in a big bag with the cinnamon sugar and it seemed to work well. As for the salsa, I made it twice in two days. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly. I tried using my egg slicer for the kiwi and ended up breaking the slicer. I just cut everything by hand, making very tiny pieces because it needs to fit on a chip. It turned out very pretty and everyone at my bookclub loved it and couldn't believe that I made it, especially the chips. The second time I made the salsa, it was just for my husband and I, so it didn't need to be pretty. This time, I just cut up each fruit and pulsed them in the food processor for a few seconds... so much faster!!! I added blackberries and blueberries, and didn't have anymore raspberries, but it seems to be delicious no matter what fruit you add. I will say that the addition of the blackberries kind of muddied the color, so if you are going for presentation, be cautious of that. I love this recipe and will definitely make it again.
I served this at a 50th wedding reception and it was a big hit. Since berries were out of season, I used frozen "Berry Mix" with strawberries, blueberries,blackberries and raspberries. Then added an apple, kiwi and fresh peach. Pulsed all fruit VERY quickly in food processor and was done. No cutting required but do be careful about not over-pulsing or you will have a liquid. It was pretty and tasted great.
I took this to a party this past weekend and it did not go over very well. More people ate the chips than the salsa. I don't know why. I really liked it. I guess they weren't a fruit crowd.
Very tasty. To cut time it takes to make chips. Spray surface of wax paper with butter spray and lay out first tortilla. Lay next tortilla on top and spray. Continue until all 10 are in stack. Cut while stacked and separate. Place 1/4 of chips in plastic sealed bag with 1/4 of cinnamon mixture. Shake to coat chips. Lay out on tray and spray again. Bake
I used this recipe at Super Bowl, with some changes in presentation, and it was amazing. I used a frozen berry mix and apples, strawberry preserves and just a bit of sugar. Next time I will omit the sugars. Instead of serving in a bowl as a salsa I put a mix of cream cheese and marshmallow cream in a 9x12 pan then topped it with the fruit salsa. I thought it might be too girly for the guys but they loved it. It was like eating fruit topped cheese cake with yummy cinnamon chips!
I have to rate this more based upon client input than my own taste test. I tasted the salsa and chips separately, which were both good but I'm sure they're better together. I used square wontons instead of tortillas, sprayed each side with the butter spray, then dredged in the cinnamon sugar. I pressed the wonton squares into a mini cupcake pan and baked. Right before serving filled the cups with the salsa. I had people run up to me just to tell me how great they were.
I made this for the first time last night and took it to a family BBQ - it was a HUGE hit with both adults and kids alike. The recipe says it only makes 10 servings but we ate it as an appetizer and there was plenty for at least twice that. For the chips, I used 20 smaller tortillas - I like this size better. The cinnamon sugar is really easy to make too - just mix 1/2 cup white sugar for every 1 tbl of cinnamon.
I wanted this to be more salsa than salad so shredded the apples and mashed everything with a potato masher. I left out the sugar as per reviews and while it does taste fantastic, it could definately use some sugar haha.. The chips are awesome - I did the melted butter on one side, stacked and cut all 10 at once with a pizza cutter. Shook em in a bag with cinn/sugar ... was so easy and no mess... thanks for the tips! One thing I'll add bcuz I saw someone mentioned it, is you do not turn these chips over as they bake. Single layer, both sides crisp up perfectly. I had two foil lined sheets going so it was pretty steady :)
This recipe is YUMMY! Every person i have passed it on to has said it has become his or her favorite. Fruit salsa is easy to make, and it is best when you make a lot so you have a lot to eat! It's fun to snack on while watching tv or a movie, and there's no fat and little sugar. You can try it with just the preserves and no sugar in the fruit as well. i definitely recommend fruit salsa!
Great appetizer! When making the chips, I spray them first (both sides) then cut them, then put them in a ziploc and shake them with the sugar. Baking them on my baking stone yields the best results!
I was so thrilled with this recipe! Make sure to let the fruit, sugar and preserves chill because that's how you get a juicy "salsa". I can't wait to use this recipe again and impress dinner guests! :)
I use this web site more then any for years now. I don't ususally review. This recipe has given me more compliments then any other ever! I cook a lot and share what I cook. I think the key to this is to make sure you take the time to cut everything nice and small. Thank-you so much for the recipe.
I think this is my favorite recipe!!! I use my apple peeler/corer/slicer and dice the fruit very small, I also use only fresh fruit (pears, papaya, apples, strawberries, kiwi, peaches, and apricot preserves) then I add some fresh lime juice which adds the perfect zing!
everyone loves this recipe that has tried it. I would highly recommend it. It is a wonderful snack to have after exercising also. Excellent!
I tried this recipe for a card club. The men as well as the women loved it. The chips are wonderful!
No doubt about it, one of the best recipes on this site! I have made this countless times, using different combinations of fruit and jellies and have never had a bad batch. The only thing I have changed over time is using 1/2 the amount of sugar and jelly. The natural sweetness of the fruit and the liquids most fruit produce provide everything needed. I have not heard a single complaint about this recipe. Couple of side notes: If you are pressed for time, skip the homemade chips, and buy a bag of cinnamon tortilla or pita chips. If you happen to make a big batch and have leftovers, they make a GREAT crumble! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
I have made this a couple of times but a key ingredient left out here is a generous squeeze of fresh lemon, especially over the chopped apples. The lemon also balances out the sugar as well. It's a very easy recipe to try adding other fruit too as well.
Absolutely excellent! How refreshing to have a new appetizer to serve guests and how delicious! Thanks!
THIS IS SOOOOO GOOD – reading a PILE of the 3000+ reviews here are a few things I learned and did – one woman stated stale tortillas worked – she was right! Whole wheat tortillas need a little more time. Baking these 10-12 minutes worked. The fruit salsa – someone spoke of using none of the sugar the preserves used would be enough and YES preserves do the job. Looking at ALL the photos – I got a lot of ideas and used a lot of fruit. One woman used an hard boiled egg slicer to slice fruit with – as soon as I read that I started slicing strawberries for my husband right away – WHAT A TIP – then with the salsa – any fruit soft enough to go through the egg slicer – got the slicer – it made slicing so much quicker. The additional fruits I cut up to use were frozen peaces, mango, frozen blueberries, some black and green grapes, and mint from my garden as part of the visual embellishment. I also cut the apples last and added to the mix so there’d be no browning My son’s girlfriend loves it – everyone loves the chips.
This recipe was a huge hit at the "Mexican" theme birthday party I took it to. Both kids and adults loved it! My 11 year old daughter enjoyed helping me make it almost as much as she enjoyed eating it!
This appetizer went over very well with my friends. They especially loved the chips!
This was excellent. Perfect summer dessert!
This recipe was so easy and everyone loved it and wanted copies!!!!
Great recipe which everyone loves. I omitted the sugar, used Granny Smith Apples for a little tartness, also added a Mango and a Peach, and used Apricot Preserves. Made this recipe numerous times, always mixing up the fruit - there is never any leftovers.
I made this the other day for a house warming party and it was absolutely FABULOUS!!!! Beautiful presentation/looks like it was much more work than it was. I used all the fruits called for in the recipe but substituted orange marmalade for the raspberry preserves. This gave the salsa a great hint of citrus plus just one more great bit of color with the orange. I too cut out the white sugar. It doesn't need it!! I added fuji apples at the end instead of the golden delicious. One suggestion I have when making the chips. Buy thin flour tortillas, not the thicker ones. After reading the reviews, here is how I made my chips. As suggested here, I put my tortilla shells on a plate in the sink, sprayed butter flavored pam on both sides, then sprinkled both sides with cinnamon sugar from a shaker. Then I cut the shells with a pizza cutter and baked for NO MORE than 9 minutes. They do get more crisp as they cool. Great recipe and I'll be making it again and again!!!
I really don’t understand why the recipe calls for sugar..I guess if the fruits aren’t in season you might need to sweet them up otherwise..you definitely don’t need the sugar. Time consuming: yes! Lot of cutting..maybe next time I’ll buy the chopper…I used, 2 golden apples, 2 kiwis, half cup of fresh pineapple, half cup of mango and only half pound of strawberries and it was enough! About the chips! Great hit! Bought 12” tortilla and cut them in 12 triangles. No doubt the idea of the muffin pan is the best! Make the chips scoopable :o) loved them!. Don’t get me wrong: everyone loved it and without the sugar and cirup the recipe is quite healthy but as some comments said: it’s a lot of time consuming for a fruit salad. Oh! I used “I cannot believe is not butter spay” on the first batch of chips and then I run out of it. So I used regular melted butter. I liked better the first batch! And on top of that NO CALORIES ON THE BUTTER!!! This is a keeper (as long as you have a chopper!)
I didn't even have a chance to put this out on the table. This appetizer was gone in a snap.
Very delicious but very messy to make. That may just be me though, and it won't stop me from making it again.
Just a SUPER recipe! Instead of an appetizer, I made a dessert. Whole tortillas with a design cut into the center making sure not to breach the outside of the tortilla. Baked for 10 minutes, allowed to cool, then spread with the fruit salsa on top. Just add whipped cream and you have a delightful ending to your favorite meal. If you desire, you can add a tortilla on top for an extra special torta!
This salsa was extremely easy to make. I was in a rush, so I omitted the brown sugar, only used one apple and substituted blueberries for the raspberries.....it was a huge hit of my gathering. Several people requested the recipe. My sister made the recipe to the letter and like the use of blueberries over raspberries due to leakage and runniess of the raspberries. Make this recipe and be pleasantly surprised!!!
Annie is a great cook! This recipe is wonderful! My bunko crew loved it! Thanks Annie!! Peg Ponto, Brooke's other MOM!!!
This is one my favorite all time recipes! I have been making this for years. It is always a crowd pleaser. To make it easier, I use frozen strawberries and raspberries. I chop each fruit in the food processor. And then I stir in a can of drained crushed pineapple. The chips are the most time consuming but SO worth the effort. They are the perfect "thinness". Buying store bought cinnamon chips are too thick. Overall this dish is AMAZING. I always hold on to some in a separate dish before I serve it so that I have some left for myself!
I was very impressed by all of the positive reviews that I had to give this recipe a try & I am glad I did! I used a smaller rump roast which I seared/browned first, maybe a 3-4 lb roast. I added 1 package of beefy onion soup mix, 2 tbsp of worcestershire sauce, 2 cloves of fresh minced garlic, salt & pepper to taste, diced celery, carrots and potateos. Cooked on low all day for 10 hours. My entire family loved it, even the picky ones! This recipe is a keeper, thank you for sharing it!!!
This was one of the first things to go at a party it was AWESOME!
My boyfriend needed a quick and easy appetizer for a large dinner and he chose this. He WOWED the crowd! Everyone raved. It was delicious, but a little more labour intensive making the crisps than indicated. We also substituted some fruit...no matter. It was terrific!
Fantastic recipe. I don't add any sugar to the salsa, and I tend to add a more tart preserve, and it disappears. It really is addictive!!
Good, semi-healthy, and easy!
This was delish!! I omitted the sugar and brown sugar, used the fruits listed in the recipe, and apricot preserves. I sprayed several tortillas with butter spray, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, cut them into wedges then baked at 350 for 9 minutes and they were perfect. All the guests went back for seconds!
check flavor of fruit before adding
This dish beat out over 15 other dishes in a contest. I made the tortilla chips and made 3 different salsas. A watermelon, strawberry, mint one, a mango,peach, kiwi one and an apple blueberry one. Evereyone loved it.
Exceptional! Use the smaller tortillas though for a more chip-like look....cut them all and then put in rows on baking sheet, spray with Pam and then sprinkle with the cinnamon & sugar mixture.
Love this recipe! I wound up, somewhat accidentally, making a very different version than the one listed. I didn't add any of the sugar to the salsa. I also didn't add the preserves. I wish I could say that was a planned decision, but truthfully I just couldn't get the lid off the preserve jar. LOL. But it still ended up tasting delicious, the fruit is sweet enough on it's own. I also used pita bread instead of the tortillas. I just split 8 6" round pita pockets in two (leaving 16 6" round flat pitas), placed them on nonstick foil on a cookie sheet. Butter-sprayed the front and back of each one, stacked 2 or 3 together and sliced them with a pizza cutter. I made only 1/2 of the cinnamon-sugar mixture, put it in a salt shaker and sprinkled on both sides the chips. Then cooked for 10 minutes. Everything tasted great, texture of salsa and chips are perfect, and by not using sugar or preserves in the salsa, replacing the tortillas with pita and only using half the cinn-sugar mixture, it wound up a very healthy, low calorie treat. With 64 chips made, they were only 30 calories per chip, and less than 400 calories for the entire huge bowl of salsa.
This receipe was really easy and very tastey!!! If you want to come home from a party with an empty bowl, try this recipe!!!
This recipe was very delicious. I suggest you make the recipe as written before making any modifications. All the fruits balance each other out. Adding different fruits can alter the taste, making it too sweet or too sour.
Fantastic. My guests loved it.
I did not use the sugar or preserves and it was still amazing. I sprayed my cutting board with butter and put one tortilla on it then sprayed the top of that one and stacked another, each time spraying only the top as the bottom would butter itself from the top of the tortilla underneath. I then cut fajita size tortillas into 4 wedges and dredged them in a mixture of 1 tablespoon to 1 cup of sugar. It's important not to get too much butter or the tortillas will have too much sugar and will burn easily.
YUM! And super addictive. I used the recipe as a guideline but took the advice of others to cut the sugar down. I used 1/4 cup of sugar TOTAL as the preserve has plenty of it. A tip for the chips: Be sure to coat the tortillas entirely with the cinnamon sugar for an even yummier chip. I found it time consuming to bake the tortillas (laying the triangles in a single layer to bake) but worth the wait in the end.
This recipe is excellent my family loves it. I just wish I could buy cinnamon tortilla chips already made in the store. I don't like doing that part of the recips.
5 stars just for the chips. The fruit salsa is good too, but you can eat the chips alone. As for making the chips, I wouldn't suggest coating both sides as other reviewers have said. I did this the first time and about half of them practically fused onto the pan.
Our Marsh groceries store has pre-packaged cinnamon/sugar tortilla chips near the deli section that work great with this recipe and speed up the time! You might look for them so you don't have to make your own -- especially if you're transporting it somewhere.
This was a real hit with the kids. The fruit salsa was great, but too sweet. I think next time I'll leave out half the sugar, and perhaps omit completely the preserves. Remember, the chips are covered with sugar also, so don't worry about having too little sweetness! Enjoy!
I used canned peaches instead of raspberries, and no sugar. I used raspberry preserves though and it was plenty sweet! also got Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips since I didn't have time to make them. most were surprised when I told them what it was- loved it!
I made this as a dessert for a girls night and it was gone in no time. Absolutely delicious!!
I have made this twice, once for a Memorial Day picnic and then for my daughter's first birthday party picnic. Both times I got many compliments and many people asking for my recipe. I made it once as the recipe states but without the preserves and then once replacing the raspberries with blueberries also without the preserves. Outstanding! Is becoming a staple for all of our family gatherings.
I made this for the first time last night for our housewarming party. Everybody LOVED it and asked for the recipe! I made it the night before and it was absolutely fantastic. I used strawberry-rhubarb jam for the preserves, and followed the recipe to the tee. It was perfect and everyone loved the cinnamon chips as well. They couldn't believe that I made them out of flour tortillas! I will be making this for years to come. It's delicious as is and I wouldn't change a thing!
Made this as a healthy snack for parent helper day at Nursery School - everyone LOVED it! I purchased the tortillas to make the cinnamon chips but also bought the Stacy's Pita Crisps just in case - thought the storebought chips were a little too thick. Tasty, but not the best choice for preschoolers. EXCELLENT RECIPE!!
Incredible!! My family loved it! I would suggest making extra chips, my chips were going faster than the salsa.
Very good, Used peach as others said, Chips were a big hit, I had to fix more later in the evening. I have an alligator chopper that really hurried up the process, A bit messy but well worth it. A 10 star keeper.
Made this many times and still get so many complements! THANK YOU!
This one gets devoured quickly every time.
I took this to our work potluck yesterday and got rave reviews from everyone. I did make a few slight changes based on what the other reviewers said. I substituted mango for apples and left out the sugars. I chopped everything rather than dicing as I wanted a more salsa like texture. For the preserves I used Mango/Peach pepper jelly. It was a nice surprise to folks who tasted it and said "hmmm...what is that little zing at the end?" To save time with the chips I lightly brushed both sides of the tortillas with olive oil and shook the wedges in a bag rather than sprinkling the cinnamon sugar. All in all these were a hit and will definitely make them again! Thanks for the great recipe!
A yummy hit!
Served at a party and got rave reviews! Used fresh mangoes instead of strawberries because they were out of season. Very versatile recipe. I microwaved the preserves until the gel-like quality was gone so that it could be more easily incorporated into the salsa.
This was delicious. I made it exactly like the recipe besides the amount of fruit. I thought the more fruit and bigger variety made it better.
This recipe is a HIT at parties! I buy store-bought cinnamon pita chips to save time... I also like to pulse all the ingredients in a food processor a few times before serving, because I like it to be just a little more smooth. Thanks for a great, UNIQUE recipe!
I finally got to make this for a party and most people really liked it. I used 2 peaches instead of the raspberries and left out the white sugar and 1 T of the preserves. I used Trader Joes cinnamon sugar pita chips -- they are quite good and much easier!
OMGosh! This is so delicious. I was looking for a healthy snack for tailgating and came across this recipe. It was a hit. I've made it twice and for the most part went right by the recipe. Since fresh raspberries were not available at our grocer, I substituted the frozen whole raspberries. I chopped them slightly in the food processor before adding them to the mixture. It was delicious but did make the salsa a little more watery than if I had used fresh, but nevertheless, it was delicious. The second time I made this recipe, I substituted frozen peaches for the raspberries and again chopped them in the food processor before adding them to the other fruit. I also added some fresh blueberries just b/c I love them (and b/c I was going for an orange and blue tailgate theme...WAR EAGLE!). Delicious again. Both times, I chopped the apples into about 1/2 inch cubes and then tossed them in a couple of Tablespoons of lime juice to keep them from turning brown. This will definitely be a keeper for all of our tailgating parties. And by the way, I failed to mention that the chips are great as well...very flavorful and crispy.
Wonderful! I made this recently for a huge party and it was a hit!! I used Fuji apples, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and kiwis...delicious. It did take some time chopping it all (didn't want to shred it in the food processor) but it was worth it. Everyone loved it! Also, made the cinnamon tortilla chips- good but time consuming as well. Might try store bought kind next time to save time. The fruit makes a gorgeous salad!! Thanks for sharing!!! Will definitely make again!!
would give 20 stars if i could this is now my dish to bring anytime i need a dish to pass huge hit loved it
Best dish at a party ever!
I used Kiwi, an apple, and a bag of frozen mixed fruit. Turned out really well. To save time I just bought a bag of Pita chips. I also used the sugar and preserves. I think the preserves really helped. It lasted for several days and was a great snack to pull out.
SUPER SUPER GOOD! The only thing I did differently is that I added mango. Very good, everyone loved it!
AMAZING!!! Made it for a work potluck and it was a big hit! Everyone wanted the recipe!
As is, this recipe deserves 5 stars. However, more recently, I've experimented with a spicy version which has also received rave reviews, although probably not for the grandparents. I add 2-3 finely-diced jalapenos, 1T Cayenne pepper and optionally, 1T fresh cilantro. This creates a perfect sweet/spicy combo for me, but I like things fairly spicy. Adjust to your own taste. We even topped slow-cooked pork with this spicy version...a huge hit!
Fresh, sweet, and delicious! If you don't want to take the time to make the cinnamon chips, try store-bought cinnamon pita chips or even cinnamon graham crackers.
The fruit salsa was nothing to rave about. The CHIPS however are AMAZING! So easy and amazing tasting
Loved this recipe!
Yummy, I made for a womans get together and got a request for the recipe the next day. Will make again for sure! I even thought leftovers (if there is any!) would make a great drink you if you blended it up with some ice, and some rum for a daquari!
I loved this as an appetizer. Easy and very good
Delicious! However, I am going to leave the sugar out next time. Sugar brings out the juices of the fruits and makes the salsa a big wet, mushy mess.
This is absolutely delicious. We make this so much that it's rare not to find this in our fridge. We eat it with Cinnamon cookies, with vanilla yogurt and on ice cream. YUM!
OMG this was a huge hit at Christmas and I have made another time since for a small get together in which everyone loved it! I went the easy route and bought cinnamon sugar pita chips which were delicious. I used an apple, two kiwi, half a pineapple, blackberries, and a tablespoon of apricot jam, omitting all other sugar. It was not needed. Will definately continue to make! A lot of work chopping and fruit can be expensive though. UPDATE: I buy cinnamon sugar chips from store. Jewel has their own brand. Stacys are good too. Meijer has their own brand also. So much easier! I also only use fruit, no need for sugar or preserves. I've added pineapple and blackberries, try using any variety of fruit and it works. Some are just watery than other so be careful to drain the pineapple a bit.
