Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Sugar Chips
This salsa is such a fun treat! It has a great summery taste but uses ingredients that you can find even in the winter. It's super easy to make and a great starter recipe for kids to make too. I listed my favorite ingredients below but honestly there are lots of different fruits you can add to the mix. Others we use include fresh pineapple, peaches, or apples. They are great with cinnamon sugar chips! Make your own or buy them. I found some delicous ones at a local mexican restaurant or you can buy the Stacy's brand cinnamon pita.
1 lb. strawberries (chopped)
1 mango (peeeled and chopped)
2-3 kiwis (peeled and diced)
1 small can mandarin oranges
Wash and chop all fruit. Combine in a medium sized bowl. Serve with cinnamon/sugar chips (recipe below!
