Sweet Summer Fruit Salsa | Simply Southern Baking


Isn’t this just the best time of year to buy fresh fruit?  There’s such an abundance available right now that it’s hard to resist, especially when you walk by the stands at the farmer’s market and get a whiff of those powerful sweet smells!  I loaded up with fruit a few days ago and decided to make this Sweet Summer Fruit Salsa since we had a family dinner we were going to.  The recipe had been on my mind for a few weeks and this seemed like the perfect time to try it out.  Everyone raved about this salsa and they’ve been anxiously waiting for the recipe to be posted.  By the way, hubby is still talking about it.  It’s hard to explain what an amazing burst of fruit you get in every luscious bite…you’ll have to try it for yourself to see what I mean.  Needless to say, this recipe is going on the “keeper” list at my house.

I served this with my sugared tortilla chips (see Fudgy Strawberry Brownie Nachos for recipe).  This would also be fantastic served over vanilla ice cream.  For a sweet and salty taste, I thought the lime-flavored tortilla chips might make a good “dipper” for this salsa…something to try next time.

With the help of my OXO Summer Fruit Tools I’d received as part of their Blogger Outreach Program, this recipe was much easier to prepare.  The Strawberry Huller removes the hull, stem and leaves all at once.  The Cherry Pitter easily removes the pits by just pressing the handle.  The Ratcheting Pineapple Slicer quickly cores and slices fresh pineapple.  I’m so ready to go get another pineapple to use this with and eat it all up myself.  No more buying fresh pineapple already sliced for me.  A word of caution about the pineapple tool:  make sure you follow the measurement guides for height.  I actually turned it a bit too far and cut through the pineapple bottom, which resulted in juice dripping off the cutting mat and onto the floor!  Oh my, that means I didn’t have pineapple juice to drink later.

There were two other fruit tools in the gift box above that I didn’t use in this post – the Mango Splitter and 2-Piece Fruit Scoop Set.
