Fruit Salsa Recipe

I love “Salsa” anything in any form or fashion. Mango salsa, tomato salsa, black bean salsa…you name it. But, I’ve never had fruit salsa. How is that even possible?

I’m so happy that fruit salsa is now in my life. How did I ever get along without it?

This particular recipe is made with a fruit preserve mixed with sugars. The preserves give the fruit a syrup-type coating that is delicious. If you’d rather not have the fruit preserve coating you can simply substitute lemon juice for a fresher approach.

How Long Will Fruit Salsa Last?

  • Fresh fruit salsa should be eaten within a day. If kept longer, the fruit will tend to over-ripen and become soggy or rot

Can I substitute Fruits in the Salsa?
