Earlier this week I shared with you my recent Pinterest fail. All was not lost however because that same day I was in the kitchen preparing what would be a Pinterest win!
It all started when I was trying to come up with a healthy contribution for a Super Bowl get-together(Ravens!). On my “Tastes & Treats” board I came across a fruit salsa recipe which seemed simple to make and full of good-for-you ingredients.
I followed the link and arrived at a blog called “One More Moore.”
I used the recipe as a guideline but made some slight changes…most notably eliminating all sources of added sugar. Fruit is sweet enough already!
K’s No-Sugar Added Fresh Fruit Salsa
Adapted from: Annie’s Fruit Salsa
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
1 pink lady apple, peeled, cored, diced
~1/4 cup blueberries, halved
6 strawberries, diced
Aim to chop everything into similar sized pieces (that way you get a nice variety of flavors in each bite).
Mix everything together and enjoy!
The original recipe included instructions for making your own cinnamon pita chips, if you’re interested. I took the cheaters way out though and bought them from Trader Joe’s.
Crispy cinnamon pita + sweet fruit = a scrumptious scoop of delight. My co-workers loved it as well!
No Sugar, No Problem
As I mentioned the biggest change I made to the recipe was leaving out the added sugar. Fruit is sweet by nature, so to me it is completely unnecessary. I omitted 2 Tbsp sugar, 1 Tbsp brown sugar, and 3 Tbsp preserves yet still ended up with a sweet and tasty treat.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy dish to bring to your next get-together, look no further. Hit the produce aisle and you’ll be good to go!
Now I want to know…
Do you have a favorite recipe featuring fresh fruit? If so, feel free to leave a link in the comments section and share. I’m always looking for new recipe ideas.
