Fresh Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Chips

Who’s ready for Summer?!  Fresh fruit drizzled with sweet jam served with buttery, cinnamon chips, fragrant from the oven…

Let’s Saaalsaaaaaa…..
I think Winter has finally given up in our area. It fought hard right at the end with a couple snow storms the past few weekends, but it’s finally feeling like Spring has won. The grass is green and and I feel the sun on my face it has some heat behind it.


I find myself daydreaming of Summer, Summer fruits, BBQ and dancing. Dancing ?? Well, I have always had an interest in Latin dance, especially tango and salsa, lots of fun, complete with spins, sharp movement, crisp turns, but i never had time to attend some classes. I’m already craving for fresh fruits and my thoughts as I was writing this automatically went to Fruit Salsa with cinnamon chips! I know your all wondering, why ? Well think about it fun, spins, crisp and sweet! All the combinations of a very tasty fruit Salsa recipes. Luckily, the grocery stores near us have had some big, beautiful strawberries lately, and I thought a perfect way to use some and fill my craving for fruit would be to make some fruit salsa and cinnamon chips.
So follow me to the kitchen and “Let’s Salsa”
