Fruit Salsa

Ingredients

Pears or apples - two each for a small salsa; more for a large

A variety of berries - strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries

Canada's Food Guide recommends eating lots of fruit and vegetables as part of a healthy and balanced diet.


Directions

Use either pears or apples as the chunky feature to your salsa.

Dice pears or apples - or both - into small pieces. Mash berries with a spoon or potato masher or use a blender or food processor. Make them as smooth as you like. Mix the diced apples, pears and blended berries together in a bowl to create your fruit salsa!

Cinnamon pita chips

Ingredients

Whole grain tortilla wraps

Cinnamon and sugar to taste

Directions

Pre-heat the oven to 350°.

Cut the whole grain flour tortilla wrap into triangles. Brush the top of the tortilla with water, then sprinkle with cinnamon, and sugar if you like. Bake the cinnamon covered tortilla chips in the oven on a cookie sheet, until they begin to brown, or until your preferred crispy texture.

Allow the cinnamon chips to cool for about 5 minutes.
Dip your chips in your fruit salsa and enjoy.
