Holiday Treats – Fantastic Fruit Salsa!

So, have you been crazily busy like I have been getting ready for Christmas?  Between, shopping, getting Christmas cards out, wrapping presents, making tie six blankets (I don’t know why I thought making homemade gifts was a good idea, ha!), keeping kids busy all day(since school is out), comforting my teething 6-month-old, oh yeah . . .AND everything else it has just been super busy!  But in the end it is all worth and I am super proud of my blankets! 

So with all the hustle and bustle of the season, I have a super, super simple recipe that is perfect for entertaining! I always make this for the holidays but I have changed some ingredients and cut down my chopping time! Actually there is NO knife cutting for this recipe, yay!




I started off by thawing some frozen fruit.  I find frozen works because because they are full of in-season flavor and can be easily chopped for this recipe.


Now here is my little secret weapon, this Chefmate® kitchen utensil! It does all the chopping for the recipe!


Just chop up the frozen fruit!


Easy as pie!



I also added pineapple.  I made a mistake and bought the tidbits, I would recommend using the crushed.  I chopped up the tidbits.


Add all the fruit together and mix.


I added two packets of stevia and a tablespoon of honey!  All done!


Now for the chips, I like Stacy’s Pita Chips (I wonder why I like this brand, ha!) About 6 years ago, the Stacy’s brand sent a lovely sample box of pita chips to every Stacy in America with this exact spelling!  I was a lucky girl that received this package. It said, “To: Stacy, From: Stacy",  I was super excited, yes for pita chips!  I usually like the good ole’ cinnamon sugar variety with this recipe but I found a new variety, Simply Gingerbread.  It is fabulous or as my son would say, “It’s Deee-Licious!  And I am not a huge fan of gingerbread but they sure are tasty!


I broke out my lovely dishes from our wedding (yes, 6 years ago), thanks Tara!


What a great way to get in some super foods for the Holiday!
