Yummy Fruit Salsa

This has been a hard week for us. Logan and Jonah have had terrible fevers and these terrible cold/flu symptoms. Now, luckily they are better. I however, am not. I started with a fever of 101 tonight and I have the same garbage they had. In this light, I would just like to say I AM READY FOR SPRING!!!! With this in mind, I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes, my ever-so-secret fruit salsa.


Fruit Salsa
2 cups chopped fresh cantelope
6 green onions, chopped
3 kiwifruit, peeled and finely chopped
1 medium navel orange, peeled and finely chopped
1 medium sweet yellow pepper, chopped
1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
1 can (8 oz.) crushed, unsweetened pineapple (drained)
2 jalepeno peppers chopped very finely (I only use 1 and it is still pretty spicy)

combine all ingredients:

Just prior to serving add:
16 oz. of finely chopped fresh strawberries

Serve with cinnamon Tortilla chips


Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
10 flour tortillas (8 inches)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Combine sugar and cinnamon.
Brush tortillas with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Using a pizza cutter, cut the tortilla into 8 wedges. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-14 minutes, until they are crispy.

One serving is equal to 1/2 c. salsa and 5 chips. equals 170 calories, 5 grams fat, (2 g. saturated fat) 8 mg. cholesterol, 189 mg sodium, 29 grams carbohydrate, 2 grams fiber, 4 grams protein.

I LOVE your fruit salsa Lauralee!! I am always so happy when you bring it. I was kind of hoping "someone" would make it for our Easter dinner (hint hint).

Hope you are better by Sunday!! (well actually sooner but you know what I mean!)
