Sheri's Honey Fruit Salsa

Sheri's Honey Fruit Salsa

One of the best things of summer is the cool, refreshing foods you can make that are the absolute easiest and fastest.

Yesterday, during one of the most gorgeous days we've had so far this summer, I came up with this fruit salsa made with honey, and paired it with cinnamon chips.  It could also make a great topping for salmon or other fish, added to a lettuce salad, or mixed in chicken salad on a croissant. 

As is in lots of my recipes, you can make this with whatever fruits you have on hand.  I used about 1/2 c each of apples, kiwi, plums, and peaches.  You could load it up with berries instead, or go for tropical with pineapples and oranges.  Your possibilities are only limited to your imagination.

Chop your fruit fine.

Next add up to 3 T of honey, 1 T of either maple syrup or molasses, and 3 T of a fruit jam.  I tried orange marmalade, my own blackberry jam, and something cool called bakeapple jam from our friend, Dr. Dan, who brought it to us from Newfoundland.  It's all good!

The cinnamon chips are easy.  Cut flour tortillas into wedges.  Spray on a butter flavor cooking spray, sprinkle on cinnamon, and spray again.  Put in oven for a few minutes until toasty and crunchy.

Dish up salsa and place on a serving dish, surrounded by chips. We enjoyed this dish with our meal, but it would be great for a snack with an ice tea, or taken along to a barbecue.
