Make this easy Summer Fruit Salsa for your next cookout. Blueberries, apples, and strawberries tossed together for a light and fresh summer dessert!
If you’re looking for a last minute side dish or dessert for your 4th of July party I’ve got it right here. This simple Summer Fruit Salsa is great all summer long but with this beautiful red, white, and blue fruit combination it is perfect for 4th of July especially when you serve it with star-shaped cinnamon chips!
We’ve got big plans for the upcoming holiday. I’ve been planning my menu all week and I can’t wait to throw some meat on the grill and get this party started! My guy will be manning the grill and cooking up some brats, hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken, and I’m in charge of …well everything else. That means I’ll be running to Publix this week to do my grocery shopping and pick up all of my cookout supplies. My goal this year is to make everything as simple as possible so I can enjoy my guests more and worry about the details less. All of my sides can be made the day before, including today’s pretty, and delicious, Summer Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Stars and I’m making clean up easy with the Chinet® brand. Their Chinet® Classic White™ collection has dinner plates, dessert plates, all occasion plates, platters, bowls, napkins, and even tablecovers. It’s everything I need to host a cookout! Chinet® Classic White™ plates are sturdy enough to hold all of the meat and sides I plan to load my plate up with and Chinet® Cut Crystal® cups are perfect for 4th of July sweet tea and lemonade. Everything is disposable and the Chinet® Classic White™ collection is made from recycled material and compostable so at the end of the day plates, napkins, cups, and tablecovers get composted or recycled so clean up is quick and easy.
Good thing those plates are leak resistant because guests are going to be heaping their plates with this awesome fruit salsa. I am making it the day before to save time on the 4th of July and also because after sitting all night the fruits get juicy and the flavors meld together and it is even better!
It’s really easy to make. All you need to do is dice up strawberries, and apple, and pour in some blueberries. Then squeeze some lemon juice over everything to add a little zip to the flavor and to keep those apples from turning brown. Don’t worry it isn’t going to be sour because next comes the sugar. Gently toss everything together, put some plastic wrap over the bowl and put it in the fridge until you are ready to serve it. The chips are just as easy to make. A little butter on some flour tortillas, sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar then bake them until they are crispy. Simple and delicious! I made these star chips by cutting the flour tortillas with a star cookie cutter but you can always skip that and just cut them into triangles.
