Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 oz. Container of Strawberries
  • 1 Pint Blueberries
  • ½ Pint Raspberries
  • 2 Apples I used Honeycrisp
  • ½ Cup Lemon Juice fresh is best
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • ¼ tsp Vanilla
  • For the Chips
  • 6 Flour Tortillas Medium
  • ½ Cup Butter
  • ½ Cup Sugar
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Instructions

  • To make the salsa-
  • Dice the strawberries into small pieces and place in a medium size bowl. Chop the blueberries and raspberries in halves or fourths, depending on their size, and add them to the bowl with the strawberries.
  • Peel and finely dice the apples and place them in the bowl with the chopped berries.
  • In a small bowl combine the lemon juice, honey, and vanilla, mix well and pour over the berries and apples.
  • Gently stir to coat the fruit with the lemon juice mixture and evenly distribute the berries and apples.
  • Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  • *note- for the best color serve immediately, the apples will take on a pink tint from the berries after sitting for several hours, this does not affect the flavor just the color. So for the best red white & blue contrast serve soon after making.
  • To make the chips-
  • Preheat the oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter cut the tortillas into 8 equal triangles.
