Very Berry Fruit Salsa

My kids love fresh berries. Who can resist their sweet flavor? Last week I realized I had raspberries, blueberries and strawberries all on hand and simply had to make something with all three of them. Since it was very hot, I opted for something fresh for Wes and I for Mini Chef Mondays. We made this delicious Very Berry Fruit Salsa and enjoyed them with warm cinnamon and sugar flatbread triangles. Yum!

After complaining several times about having to eat strawberries so quickly before they go bad, my mom came to my rescue. She surprised me with three Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers to keep my produce fresh longer. I honestly had never heard of these before but use them all the time now. Simply place your unwashed fresh produce inside and store them in the fridge. My strawberries are lasting several more days now!

I let Wes pick out which strawberries he wanted to use and wash them in a colander.

We also set to work together cutting up our strawberries together. Wesley handled cutting off the stems with his butter knife and I chopped them up.

We had a bunch of delicious seedless limes so we zested and juiced one for more flavor. Lemon or orange would work just as well.

I went with a delicious wild blueberry jam made locally but any of your favorite preserves would work for this recipe.

Very Berry Fruit Salsa

Course Dessert/Snack/Appetizer
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 8
Author Emilie from Findingzest.com

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 1/2 raspberries sliced in half
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons jam/preserves

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in large bowl and gently stir.
  2. Let sit at least 15 minutes before serving.
  3. Eat immediately with cinnamon tortilla crisps, flatbread or chips.
  4. Refrigerate leftovers.

To make our cinnamon flatbread, I simply heated them one at a time in a frying pan on the stove (about 30 to 45 seconds each side on medium heat) then spread butter over it and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Then cut into triangles and serve. Warming them up in the oven would have been even easier but I didn’t want to turn it on. The microwave will also work.

With our leftovers I served our fruit salsa a couple of days later with angel food cake and whip cream. It was delicious!

    Your Very Berry Fruit Salsa recipe is amazing! I will have to make this and have it with healthy crackers. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I can’t wait till our daughter is old enough to help in the kitchen, so much fun. I bet this would be great for a brunch setting.

    This sounds so good. I’m excited to try jam this way with a fruit salsa. You have a good little helper, there, he looks quite adept at it!
