Fruit Salsa

This is one of the easiest salsas I have found, and my cooking classes went mad for it. You can use any variety of fruit, as long as you use the lemon juice to keep the fruit from browning. The photo is from They have some excellent salsa (and other) recipes there too!

Fruit Salsa
Use any of the following fruits in combination and simply drizzle with a mixture of honey and lemon or lime juice. Always wash, peel and slice or cup fruit into small chunks before tossing with the honey and juice, otherwise the peel can distort the flavor and make it bitter to the taste. Allow to sit (covered) in fridge for approximately one hour or more to blend flavors. Colorful, healthy and delicious! Serve with cinnamon chips or cinnamon toast.

Fruit Combinations
  1. Kiwis, peeled cut in small chunks; strawberries, washed and sliced lengthwise; apples, peeled and cored then sliced into thin pieces, canned crushed pineapples
  2. Sliced mandarin oranges,strawberries, chopped seedless green or red grapes, apples
  3. Oranges, grapefruit, kiwi and apples, peeled and cut into small chunks
  4. Oranges (peeled and cut into small chunks), firm bananas (peeled and cut into thin disks), strawberries (washed and sliced lengthwise) and washed blueberries
  5. Strawberries, blueberries, grapefruit and apples (as above for preparation)
  6. Kiwis (peeled and chopped), strawberries (washed and chopped) and cucumbers (peeled and chopped)
  7. Canned crushed pineapple, strawberries, kiwi and raspberries
  8. Canned or fresh peaches, blueberries, strawberries or raspberries and canned pineapples
  9. Canned peaches (chopped), strawberries, blueberries, sliced blackberries (in season), canned pineapples 
  10. Your choice of favorite fruits. Just remember, if you use one "mushy" fruit such as bananas or canned crushed pineapple, balance it with firm fruit such as apples, pears, strawberries or blueberries for texture.
