A fresh fruit salsa is a fun dessert for summertime! This blend is sweet and tart, and perfect with crunchy crackers for dipping. A blend of apples, berries, and mango make this a sweet and colorful treat.
When you love berries, winter can be a frustrating season, at least where I live.
When I head to the grocery store, there are usually some berries available, but no matter how pretty they look, they usually lack flavor. They’re tart, or bland, or have a weird texture.
As far as berries go, there’s nothing like waiting for the summer months when they are in season.
Once you have delicious strawberries available, that’s the time to make this easy fresh fruit salsa.
I love this easy summer dessert/appetizer. It’s full of summer flavor, and bursting with the goodness of lots of fresh fruit.
This easy fruit salsa can be made in a jiffy! Perfect for a last minute summer party or barbecue. The amount and type of sugar can be adjusted based on the sweetness of the fruit and your own personal preference. You could also do a natural sweetener like honey or agave syrup instead.
What should you eat with fruit salsa?
This is a sweeter fruit salsa, and doesn’t have any spice. It’s more of a dessert recipe. I like to serve this with my cinnamon sugar oatmeal crackers (you’ll want to double the recipe). You could make cinnamon sugar tortillas if you’re able to eat wheat, that would be another good option for dipping.
Some fruit salsa recipes don’t contain added sugar, and are spicy – like a pineapple and jalapeno salsa. Those types of salsa are good for eating with regular tortilla chips, or serving over fish or chicken.
What fruits work best in fruit salsa?
You could really use almost any fruit in this recipe. If you don’t like mango, add pineapple. Out of strawberries? Try a different berry. This is a very versatile recipe.
How long does fruit salsa keep?
I haven’t tried to keep this for more than a couple of days – we eat it right up! But it should last for three days in the refrigerator.

Yum! I could eat a big ol’ bowl of this with a spoon! Yum!
Here’s hoping you get some glorious spring sunshine really, really soon! xo
Thank you, we have some sun this week, yay!
I could use a piece of summer in my life and this salsa is looking like perfection. I just made a strawberry salsa a couple days ago and put it on salmon – so good! I’ll have to give your recipe a try for my next go round. Hang in there, girl..we’ll get our summer soon, and in the meantime, I hope you stay warm!
That salmon looked amazing! Hope you are having some summery weather this weekend!
