Fruit Salsa

I am a little late in posting this... Hubby and I made it a few weeks ago, but I am finally getting around to posting it!  I originally found a recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything, but we tweaked it a bit, because I couldn't get some of the fruit. *This recipe is best made the day of or day before eating, otherwise it can get pretty juicy (still good though). It also Freezes very well!*

-Makes about 2 quarts
You will need:
1 Pineapple, peeled
2 Golden Delicious apples
8 ounces raspberries
1 (16 oz) carton of strawberries, diced
1-3 tbps honey
OPTIONAL: 3 tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor (I used strawberry)

Clean & peel your pineapple. We don't have a fancy corer or anything, so just cut strips of the fruit from around the core. You want to chop this into small pieces. They don't need to be all the same size though, promise!

(heart!) Peel your apples and cut them as you wish. I don't think my husband used a corer, just a knife (see below). They need to be cut into small pieces.


Cut the tops of the strawberries and then into small pieces, like the other fruit.

Mmm, pineapple and strawberries!

Didn't take any photos of the raspberries, but chop small also. Mix all the fruit into a medium size bowl.

We used one heaping spoonful of preserves, but next time we won't. Not needed with all the juice of the other fruits! At the little bit of honey at this point. Start with one tbsp and add to your taste/liking. This is in place of where GWAE used sugar.

Give it all a good stir and you are ready to eat! We made cinnamon tortilla chips  but you could also use pita chips or graham crackers!

It also freezes EXTREMELY well. This recipe makes a large amount of salsa. We split it into 3 containers, one for the day of, and 2 to go in the freezer. Just thaw them in the fridge a day ahead of time and they are just as good as fresh!
