I’ve been making fruit salsa for years and have several kinds of fruit salsa recipes on my blog from pineapple salsa to watermelon salsa.

This is a great recipe to make when you want to bring a healthy appetizer to a party or for when you feel like snacking but are on a diet. For some reason, eating the fruit all cut up and mixed together makes it more fun!

How To Make Fruit Salsa
Start by dicing a couple of apples. Cut the apples into slices and then cut the slices into small pieces. Put all of the diced apples in a bowl.
I never worry about making them all the same size. They are going to be mixed in with the other fruits in a bowl. Just make sure the pieces are small enough to be scooped onto a chip.
Next, dice the strawberries and add them to the apples in the bowl.
If you can find fresh strawberries, they are the best way to go. If they aren’t available you can thaw frozen strawberries and slice them instead.
Wondering how to quickly dice strawberries? While dicing a whole pint of strawberries, I discovered a little trick that made it quicker.
Make cuts along the length of the strawberry without cutting into the top part where the stem is (this will help hold the strawberry together while cutting). Turn the strawberry and make more cuts along the length on the other side. Finally, make the cuts across the width of the strawberry and all of the diced strawberry pieces will fall off the strawberry stem as you cut.
For the peaches, I usually choose no sugar added canned yellow cling peaches since they are always available and ripe. But if it is peach season and you can get your hands on some fresh, juicy peaches, go for it!
Next, peel and dice the kiwi. Add them to the bowl.
Once you’ve got all of your diced fruit in a bowl just give it a stir and it is ready to eat.
How To Make Cinnamon Chips
Cinnamon chips are delicious with fruit salsa and are super easy to make! For this recipe, I used mini flour tortillas but any size will work.
Spray the flour tortilla with cooking spray and then sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar. Then, bake at 350˚F for 7-9 minutes.
