Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Dippers


Fruit Salsa is one of those desserts that I never have leftovers of after I serve it. It’s such a simple thing, and so ridiculously easy to make, and everyone seems to love it.

You can switch up what fruit you include in the “salsa”, but here are a few tips to consider as you choose:

  1. Pineapple will make everything around it taste like pineapple, so only use that if you are a big fan.
  2. Melon tends to be a strong flavor as well, except for watermelon.
  3. Try to pick a variety of color!

When I made this recently, I completely forgot to pick up a kiwi at the store. I think it would have been much prettier with some bright green kiwi in it, but it still tasted great! I used fresh, seasonal fruit so it didn’t require any sweetener!

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Dippers

For the salsa:




Apple (peeled)


Any other fruits like melon, pineapple, oranges, banana that you love!

For the cinnamon sugar dippers:

5 tortillas

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

Set your oven to 375 degrees. Spray each tortilla with cooking spray, or lightly brush with oil or butter, on one side. In a small bowl, mix cinnamon with sugar, then sprinkle over tortillas. Poke each tortilla a few times with a fork to allow air to escape while they bake!

Place in the oven for about 4-9 minutes, depending on how hot your oven is! Keep an eye on the first batch to test-you are looking for them to fluff up a bit and become crisp without browning around the edges.

While the tortillas bake, chop the fruit into very small pieces. Mix together in a bowl and keep covered until serving.

When the tortillas are cool, cut into wedges with a pizza cutter, then serve on a platter alongside the fruit salsa. Enjoy!

    I wish you would have put “massacre the fruit into very small pieces” after your recent Insta story 😂 But I guess that is more proper. Excited to make this dip for my fruit-loving fiancé!

    What kind of tortillas are these? Are the originally soft before you put them in the oven?
