    What a wonderful switch from the salsa and salted tortilla chips. Love the idea. I bet my grandsons would dig in until there wasn’t a morsel left. Thank you for sharing.

    This is a gorgeous summer dish, perfect for being the cool aunt!

    Fruit salsas are so under-rated, I think they are a deliciously sweet twist on a traditional favorite.


    1. Thanks, Kylee, and we agree. This was our first fruit salsa and honestly it could not have been more refreshingly delicious!
