Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

Labor day weekend, a few neighbors were coming over for an impromptu get-together. I thought, we needed some kind of fruit basket, because that is what my mom always had at get-togethers. I would cut a watermelon into a basket or a whale or something else not very creative. :)

I sent my DH, to the grocery store to pick up some fruit, along with the watermelon. He came home, with fruit and the tiniest watermelon I have ever seen! There was no way, I could make a basket or a whale out of it--I could possibly pull off a goldfish--but, it wouldn't hold very much fruit--so I began to think of another idea--and decided quickly that I would just make fruit salsa...

I did not have the ingredients I had heard goes into fruit salsa, so I just improvised--and it turned out perfectly--a big hit with the neighbors and my daughter!

I used my amazing Vidalia chopper- as seen on tv, and now at Target :). I LOVE IT!! Anyway, I chopped up some strawberries, some grapes, some apples, and threw in a few tablespoons of preserves, and tasted it--Oh my--I could have eaten a whole bowl!

Here is what I used

1 pint of strawberries
couple handfuls of grapes
1 whole, large apple
3 Tbl plum preserves

For the chips, I had flour tortillas on hand, (thank goodness) and cut them up w/ a pizza slicer into 1/8 sections- sprayed both sides with butter-flavored spray, and then dipped them in a cinnamon-sugar mixture. Arranged on cookie sheet, baked at 400 for 10 minutes, or until they start curling at the corners.

Wow--these were also AMAZING--noone could get enough of them! They taste like, sopapillas! And, since they are baked, they are a nice healthier version of the greasy fried, tortilla chips--
