Fresh Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Crisps

I have a TON of cookbooks and because of that, there are many that haven't been opened in a while. So, I'm now trying to rotate through them a bit better. That's how I re-discovered this tasty recipe.

It's fun, healthy and easy...three of my favorite things when it comes to cooking family meals or in this case, snacks. This recipe comes from a kid's cookbook so it's of course a great recipe to make with the little ones.

I used a star shaped cookie cutter but any shape or design works.


Fresh Fruit Salsa
1 pint fresh strawberries, stems removed and berries chopped
1 banana, peeled and chopped
2 kiwifruit, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup blueberries
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

In a medium bowl, combine all the fruit. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Drizzle, the lemon sugar over the fruit and stir gently to coat all the fruit. *I actually only used 3/4 of the lemon sugar*
Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Cinnamon Crisps
Flour tortillas
vegetable cooking spray
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Firmly press cookie cutters into the tortillas and place the tortilla cut-outs onto an ungreased baking sheet. Lightly spray with the cooking spray, then sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the tortilla cut-outs. Bake for 6-8 min or until lightly browned. Cool and serve with the fruit salsa.

WW POINTS= 2 (1/3 cup fruit salsa and 4 cinnamon crisps)
