{Recipe} Fruit Salsa & Homemade Cinnamon Chips

This is one of those recipes that I get a craving for and I just have to have it! It's usually a summer time treat when berries are in season but I've made a winter version that's just as good.
 I used to have a recipe for this but now I just wing it but here are the basics.
Fruit Salsa:
2-3 apples, chopped
2-3 kiwis, chopped
1 bunch of seedless red grapes, halved
frozen mixed berries, thawed
Combine ingredients in a large bowl.  
Add sweetener (1-3 TBS sugar, any combination of white and/or brown)*
*I used 1 tsp of Splenda brown sugar substitute
1-3 TBS of any fruit preserves
(In the summer, I like to use nectarines, plums and fresh berries)
 Stir to combine.  Cover and refrigerate.
Homemade Cinnamon Chips:
Tortillas or Pitas
Non stick cooking spray
Cinnamon sugar
Preheat oven to 350F
Cut tortillas or pitas into wedges and place on cookie sheets, spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for about 10 minutes until brown and crispy.
Dip into the fruit salsa and swoon!
Note: The cooled chips can be stored in an air tight container for about a week if the salsa lasts that long.

I wish I lived near you! I would be coming to your place all the time to eat, hahaha. And to get your vegetarian recipes of course. :) This sounds like such a good snack. Is the fruit salsa tangy or sweet? It sounds delicious either way.

Yay! I make Cinnamon Chips too. I like to serve mine with diced apples. I usually dice my apples and add some cinnamon and sugar to them too. Yummy!

I almost like this sort of thing more in the winter since fruits are out of season here in the frozen north.
