Delightfully Summer Mango and Melon Salsa with Baked Chips
2 mangoes, peeled, cut into small cubes
1 kiwi fruit, peeled, cut into small diced pieces
1/2 cantaloupe, seeded, cut into small diced pieces
1/2 organic red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 small organic jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
2 tbs. organic lemon juice
1 tbs. balsamic vinegar
2 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and toss well. Place in refrigerator to chill for up to 2 hours.
4 whole-wheat flour tortillas, 8-inch size, cut into 8 wedges
Extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Arrange tortilla wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush with oil on both sides and place in oven until crisp and golden brown (2-3 minutes per side). Transfer to a wire rack or paper-towel lined sheet tray to drain and let cool.
Tasty Tip: For a more salsa-like consistency, before chilling salsa you can pulse it a few times in a food processor or blender before chilling in the fridge.
