Family Table: Fruit Salsa

A friend of mine gave me this Fruit Salsa recipe a few years ago and it became an instant summertime hit!  This is also a great cooking activity for young children.  They can easily cut up strawberries with a plastic knife and put the ingredients into the food processor!   It’s best if you can make it the day before you want to serve it.

makes about 2 1/2-3 cups

1 large granny smith apple
1 pint fresh strawberries
2-3 med. kiwi
1 Tbls. white sugar

Peel apple & kiwi.  Chop apple in food processor until very chunky (even if you want your salsa thinner, leave these pretty chunky because you will be chopping in the strawberries & kiwi).  Add strawberries and chop until well blended. Add kiwi (***I add one at a time and taste it in between–if you get a strong kiwi, you can overpower the other flavors) and chop until salsa is at desired consistency.  Pour into bowl and stir in sugar. Refrigerate 4 or more hours for best flavor.  Serve with cinnamon pita chips or cinnamon graham crackers (I think these are better, actually!)

For a dressier dessert, spread a 1/2 graham cracker with cream cheese, spread salsa over cream cheese.  Garnish with a small sprig of mint.  Can also drizzle very lightly with chocolate or caramel sauce.

I would love to hear how you enjoyed this recipe or tweaked it for your family!!
