Sweet Fruit Salsa: 

2 tart green apples

1 kiwi fruit

1/2 cup red seedless grapes

1 cup fresh strawberries

1 small orange

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Nutmeg

2 tablespoons apple jelly

Cinnamon Chips:

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon

10 (8-inch) flour tortillas

1 tablespoon melted butter OR margarine


  1. To prepare salsa: Finely chop apples, kiwi, grapes and strawberries and place in medium bowl. Grate orange peel to measure 1 teaspoon. Squeeze juice from orange. Add juice and grated peel to chopped fruit. Stir together brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and apple jelly in small bowl. Add to fruit; toss gently to mix. Refrigerate 1 hour to mix flavors. To make cinnamon chips: Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Brush one side of tortillas with melted butter. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture on tortillas. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges (as you would a pie) and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, or until golden. Cool. Recipe Tip: substitute 1-¼ teaspoons Jamaican jerk seasoning for cinnamon and nutmeg in the salsa.
