How To Make Pomegranate Fruit Salsa
Start by preparing the fruit. When I prepared the pomegranate and removed the seeds, I saved the two halves to use as serving bowls. Wash and trim the apple, pear, strawberries, clementines, and kiwi. Cut them into small pieces.
To chop the cranberries into small pieces, you can use a food processor or food chopper. If you do not have either of these, you can carefully cut them with a knife.
Stir all of the fruit in a glass bowl until combined. If you prefer you can add cinnamon and sugar to the fruit salsa but I like mine just the way it is.
To make the cinnamon chips brush melted butter on soft flour tortillas. Sprinkle them with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
If you do not have time to make your own cinnamon chips you can pick some up at the store.
Use a pizza cutter to slice the tortillas into triangles and bake at 350° for 7 to 9 minutes. I put the baked cinnamon chips in disposable berry baskets for serving.
For a fun touch, scoop the pomegranate fruit salsa into the pomegranate bowls before serving.
