You Diamonds who have been following me for some time now know that I absolutely love being creative and showing you all things you may have never seen or tried in your life before. This fruit salsa is the epitome of that! Original savory salsa that’s spicy and filled with fresh vegetables, oils, and herbs is simply succulent, but sometimes you want to change a favorite thing into a new favorite thing! Now, I’m not just talking about throwing strawberries or some sort of fruit into traditional salsa to give it a touch of sweetness! I’m talking about taking the risk of making the entire salsa eating experience sweet, through and through. A dessert salsa if you will!!
If you use a white or light colored bowl to make this the salsa will definitely POP to look its best!
The thing I love most about this salsa is that it is insanely easy to make and it allows you to get your creative juices flowing! The thing I like least about this salsa is that it takes at least 45 minutes to chop up all the fruit into teeny tiny bite sized pieces, especially if you’re making a big batch of it. Although, it is truly worth it because it tastes extremely incredible!! It’s also a great dessert to eat if you don’t want something too rich and decadent or if you’re trying to watch your calorie intake!
All the ruby red fruits you’ll need to chop up for the sweet Summer salsa loaded with all the freshest ingredients:
- Watermelon. Dice into very small squares.
- Cherries. Slice them down the middle so that you can remove the pit and chop them into very small pieces.
- Blueberries. Slice them in half to make them even smaller so their juices can extract into the salsa.
- Strawberries. Slice long ways and then in half so you can chop them into pieces.
- If you would like to add a little tartness and crunch into your salsa you can add in a handful of pomegranate seeds!
- To finish this salsa off you need to add the juice from half of a lime, a good squeeze of honey, a pinch of sea salt to bring out the sweetness even more, and some fresh parsley.
Serve this fruit salsa with shortbread cookies, butter cookies, pound cake squares or slices, angel food cake chunks, or chocolate graham crackers!
- Personally, from my experience I wouldn’t use regular graham crackers to pair with this salsa because the cinnamon flavor does not work well with the type of fruit we have in here.
This ruby red fruit salsa is this Summers sweetest treat! It’s light, super yummy, and honestly so satisfying especially when you pile a spoonful on your favorite piece of cake or cookie. You can even serve this as a topping on a sundae bar for people who love fruit in their ice cream! A bowl of this candied goodness is perfect to bring to a pot luck, a dinner party, or a causal outdoor barbecue at your best friends house! If you are bringing it out of your house and to an event you can remove the insides of a bundt cake and fill it with the fruit salsa!! That way, you don’t have to worry about never getting your decorative bowl back and everyone will be wowed by the pretty presentation! You’ll also be able to use pieces of the bundt cake itself to use as a vessel for the salsa as it gets scooped out!
