Tropical Fruit Salsa

This post may include affiliate links.

This tropical fruit salsa is sweet, zesty, and everything you love.  Scoop some up with baked tortilla chips or use it as a topping for chicken or fish. Either way, and we know you’ll think it’s delicious! Our Tropical Fruit Salsa uses a few different types of tropical fruits, but feel free to make changes, depending on what is in season. For example, substitute a can of unsweetened pineapple chunks (drained) for fresh pineapple, and nectarines make an excellent substitution when mangoes aren’t available.

Looking for a sweet treat? Try serving a batch of Tropical Fruit Salsa with our Whole Grain Cinnamon Pita Chips.

    Since this is basically fresh fruit, I don't understand why it is not zero points. Can you explain?

      Yvonne, Because it's a recipe we have to calculate it. You should check with a weight watchers counselor to determine whether you would count points if all of the ingredients are 0 though.
