Fruit Salsa is a great summertime treat and you can vary the fruits to suit your taste. Also, if you use more of one fruit than any other, such as pineapple, you can call it a pineapple salsa.
When you are making a fruit salsa, think of substituting different fruits for the tomatoes and every other ingredient is close to what you would find in a tomato salsa. This fruit salsa can be used on fish, tacos, poultry or as a dip for chips.
So, whether you are making the salsa for fish, tacos, a chip dip or to keep the peace, you might find it is good enough to eat like a bowl of fruit. Enjoy.
