Organic Fruit Salsa: A Fresh Take on Dessert

Organic Fruit Salsa: A Fresh Take on Dessert

We take summer seriously at Honest. So, what better way to celebrate and indulge in some friendly competition than with a guacamole and salsa making contest!?! Truth be told, one salsa stole the show: the dessert salsa. Yes, we said dessert! This sweet summer alternative will have you rethinking your typical salsa and will leave you craving more. Here’s what you need make the winning recipe:

Ingredients (Use Organic When Possible)

Fruit Salsa

  • 1 Medium Pineapple, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 Large Mangoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 Quart Strawberries, hulled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 Lemons, zested and juiced
  • Coarse Sea Salt, seasoned to taste
  • 1/2 big bunch of mint, finely julienned

Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips

  • 6 large flour tortillas (You want to account for about 3 chips per person, assuming this feeds 12-16)
  • 1 Cup of super-fine sugar (can use raw or brown sugar, if preferred)
  • 2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Fruit Salsa as Dessert


1. In a large serving bowl, mix cubed pineapple, mangoes, and strawberries. Add the zest of both lemons, the juice from one lemon, and the mint. Toss to evenly coat. Make sure not to over mix, resulting in the fruit falling apart. Finish with coarse sea salt to taste.

2. In a small bowl, melt the butter in microwave (can also melt on the stove, whatever's easier). While the butter is melting, in a small bowl mix the cinnamon with the sugar.

3. Cut the tortillas into 8 wedges each (6 if you'd like larger chips). Brush both sides lightly with melted butter, just to coat, and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon sugar.

4. Bake at 425 on the middle rack for about 10 minutes until sugar has melted, and the chips are golden brown. Let cool for 10-15 minutes.

5. To serve, place a couple of chips in a bowl. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and top with fruit salsa…enjoy! (P.S. The fresh fruit salsa is equally delicious served without ice cream and even can be adapted for use with grilled fish or a tropical twist on tacos.)
