Fruit salsa. I wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Ever since I was a child, I always passed up sweet desserts for fresh fruit. Fruit was always the perfect way to end any meal. My family made fresh fruit salsa and I ate it by the spoonful. Sometimes the salsa would just include fruit, but as a special treat we added shredded coconut or a small amount of honey. It was much better than any other type of dessert. As an adult, I find any excuse to incorporate fresh fruit into my diet and love adding it to any meal.
Salsa is versatile and a great last minute addition to your favorite dish. I love serving this salsa over baked salmon or grilled chicken. Serve it with baked pita chips or plantain chips for a fun afternoon snack. Mix it into yogurt or a bowl of cereal. It even works great for dessert. Don’t be afraid to eat it by the spoonful too. What could be better than a delicious serving of fruit that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack?
