Fruit salsa with cinnamon sugar pita chips ♥

Hello Everyone! It's summer! 

Well, not technically but in our minds we are already there.  John has less than a week of school left until he's officially on summer break and (lets be real) he's already checked out! In a good way! Fun days, movies, games, and one more field trip, before their end of the year mass on Tuesday and then..... VACATION! 

To us summer means we slow-the-heck-down.  Ahhhh.....

No more schedules, early mornings rushing out of the house, quick dinners because we have homework to tend to, and tests to study for... It all goes away for a little while and we can just sit and be ♥ 

Blissful ~

I'll still be working of course, but at a more relaxed schedule (thank you to my boss : ).  There will be plenty of time to catch the ice cream man for an afternoon treat, or take a sunset walk on the beach.  Our favorite!

Now, what are eating this summer? Well, plenty!  But to get us started I wanted to share this quick little fruit delight.  I first made this a few summers ago and we absolutely loved it.  Now I make it every season!  It's the best when the fruit is ripe and delicious!  

This recipe will give Taco Tuesday a whole new meaning.  Especially if you prefer the sweet to the savory. 

You can use any fruit that you want, but here is how I like to make it:

1 apple - cored and diced (I left the skin on)
1 pint (2 cups) strawberries, sliced 

3 kiwis, peeled and diced 
1/2 cup mango or pineapple chunks (I used mango) 

1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

In a large bowl combine chopped fruit, lime juice, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Stir to combine.  Cover and chill in refrigerator at least 20 minutes.  I left mine overnight.  

For the pita chips - preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut pita rounds (I used whole wheat ones) into triangles.  Arrange in a single layer on a foil lined cookie sheet.  Brush each triangle with a little olive oil.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake for 5 minutes.  Let cool.

(*Obviously, you can really use any pita chips you like. If I'm using store bought, I love Stacy!*)

Leftover salsa is  yummy stirred into plain yogurt, on top of ice cream, on top of pancakes, or just dump it all into the blender and make a smoothie! So many possibilities!


The season is here friends! Let's celebrate by sleeping in.  Did I say that? Well, it's what I most look forward to! LOL

Happy Wednesday! xo
