Skinny Fruit Salsa

Not your typical jarred salsa!

Think you know your salsa? Think again! Salsa isn’t always simply the tomato-based dip served alongside tortilla chips. “Salsa” is the Spanish word for sauce, and it can be used as just that: a sauce for dishes ranging from chicken to fish. It can top any number of dishes, and yes, it can be used as a dip as well. But it doesn’t necessarily need to be comprised mainly of tomatoes. In fact, our healthy fruit salsa uses no tomato, and a hearty dose of fruits to conjure up a sweet topping that is perfect for warm weather grilling.

Our recipe contains a whopping amount of mangoes, which, when cubed, provide a firm structure to the salsa that’s also versatile enough to be paired with a number of savory dishes. We’ve added strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, and orange, for a variety of flavors ranging from berry sweet to tropical to zesty. We add a little bit of onion and jalapeno pepper for savory flair and brilliant spice, and our herbal concoction can’t be beat. Our mix of cilantro, chives, and mint, with a bit of lime juice added, gives this salsa a wonderfully refreshing taste.

So, have this salsa on hand, and use it for any number of purposes. Grill up some tilapia or salmon, and top it with fruity goodness! Serve the salsa on toast, for a fruity and tangy breakfast treat! And yes, if you’re in the mood for noshing on tortilla chips (hopefully the clean eating, baked variety), your chips will sing with this salsa as an accompaniment!

  1. Is the serving size and yield right? This makes 12 1/4 cup servings? That equals 3 cups? Yet there's already more than 6 cups of fruits.
