When I first heard about a fruit salsa, I loved the idea! Think of it as a finely chopped fruit salad that can be easily scooped up with dippers like cinnamon sugar pita chips, waffle cone pieces, vanilla wafers, or graham crackers. I’ve been loving fruit dips lately and fruit salsa seemed like a fun thing to try! I loved how this turned out so I just had to share.

The Best Fruits for Fruit Salsa

You can use a wide variety of fruits for this fruit salsa but the most important thing to consider is texture. You want fruits that are firm but not hard. Pineapple, mangos, strawberries, grapes, kiwis, and melon are all great in this recipe! I’d avoid using fruits that are too hard like apples, as well as foods that are too soft like bananas.

How to Make Fruit Salsa

The trick to making a perfect fruit salsa is to cut the fruit into very small, evenly sized pieces. Finely diced the fruit makes it easier to scoop up with a chip and it ensures that you get a little taste of each fruit in every bite! If you like your fruit salsa extra sweet, you can add a drizzle of honey or agave. I found that my fruit was plenty sweet on its own and it didn’t need any extra sweetener. But taste your fruit and decide if it needs extra sweetness.
