Fruit Salsa is a fresh fruit dip perfect for snacking or dessert! Loaded with kiwi, mango, strawberries and grapes, this is always a hit!
Everyone knows that salsa is amazing, but did you know that fruit salsa is an incredibly delicious treat that’s great any time of the day? Seriously, fruit and cinnamon tortilla chips or graham crackers can be enjoyed as a nice breakfast, lunch, snack, appetizer and dessert! It’s all about how you choose to serve and enjoy it!
Of course, you can also just eat it with a spoon (I may or may not have done this). This is actually like a miniature version of my Honey Lime Fruit Salad Recipe! It’s so incredibly tasty you just can’t leave leftovers for very long. Even fruit salsa over vanilla ice cream would be delicious! Just don’t think too hard about the words salsa and ice cream being put together. ;p
This fruit salsa recipe is so simple and easy to throw together that anyone can do it. The hardest part is simply prepping the fruits to use. So if you can wash a strawberry, slice grapes, or get the green out of a kiwi skin, then you’re already skilled enough to make this super simple fruit salsa!
What’s In Fruit Salsa?
- Kiwi- The easiest way to cut a kiwi is to cut off both ends and slide a spoon into the fruit, as close to the skin as possible. Then move the spoon around the entire fruit, until the skin is completely removed. Then you can easily dice the kiwi.
- Mango- Cutting your mango can seem intimidating, but it really isn’t too hard! I’ll go into detail about that below, since it requires a bit more words.
- Strawberries- washed, hulled and diced.
- Grapes- Washed and minced.
- Honey- The honey and lime juice are combined to make a flavorful sauce to bring all of the fruit together.
- Lime Juice
How to Make Fruit Salsa
Making the fruit salsa is as easy and prepping and cutting the fruit, stirring together the lime juice and honey, then mixing it all together. You can easily do this with a spoon, or you could toss it in a bowl that has a fitted lid.
I like to serve mine with cinnamon and sugar tortilla chips, graham crackers or with sugar cookies!
This will stay fresh in the fridge for a few days. The longer it sits, the softer the fruit will be and it may become slightly discolored.
How to Cut a Mango
Cutting a mango can seem intimidating, but it really isn’t hard I promise!! The first thing to know is that the mango has a thick oblong pit in the center, we will want to cut away the sides from around that.
Hold your mango stem side down. We will cut the mango into 3 sections, two fleshy sections and then one with the pit. Your knife should slide easily through the flesh of the fruit. If it is really hard, you’ve hit the pit and you may need to turn your mango and cut on the other side.
Once you have the 3 sections, take the two sections without the pit and cut lengthwise and crosswise cuts. Invert the mango (as shown in the photo above) and cut the pieces of fruit away from the skin.
Can You Freeze Fruit Salsa?
Yes you can freeze fruit salsa. Place the mix in an airtight container and freeze for up to two months. Just thaw overnight in the fridge before eating. You may notice some discoloration on the fruits because they’ll be softer, but it may even taste better than fresh because the flavors had longer to combine and become enhanced.
Can I Add In Other Fruits?
Absolutely. You can add in just about any other fruit your heart desired, just make sure that it tastes okay with the other flavors involved. Pomegranates could be a crunch and flavor burst that is well received as well. Pineapple could be amazing, too!
