My daughter recently came home from cooking class with fruit salsa and cinnamon chips. Since she wasn't very impressed with the school's recipe, she asked me if I happened to have a good fruit salsa recipe.
Well, of course I did! Although, I had completely forgotten about this Pineapple Peach Fruit Salsa recipe I created a few years ago (originally for a dessert taco recipe). So I dug it out of the archives... It's 2 Weight Watchers blue points per serving!
You can use this Pineapple Peach Salsa for whatever you use fruit salsa for - dipping with cookies (Arrowroot cookies are lower WW points) crackers, cookie crisps, cinnamon chips, topping on dessert tacos or on pork, chicken or fish. It makes a great appetizer, snack or dessert! But what makes it unique is that it has a touch of spicy. I wanted to include a recipe for homemade cinnamon crisps as well, but it was too hot to turn on the oven. So that's for another day.
The pomegranate dip, spread and marinade I use has a little spicy (chili) bite and that elevates this canned pineapple salsa to an entirely new level. However, if you can't find that particular type of pomegranate spread, then just use the jam/spread and add a touch of chili sauce to your liking (see Recipe Notes).
- dried cherries *can substitute dried cranberries
- canned diced pineapple chunks
- lime juice (from concentrate)
- canned sliced peaches
- blueberries *you can use fresh or frozen
- pomegranate spread * you can substitute pomegranate spread/jam and add a little chili sauce
*see recipe card for quantities
I love this fruit salsa because it isn't just a summer recipe- you can make it in the winter as well, using canned peaches and pineapple and even defrosted frozen blueberries (if you can't get your hands on fresh). I actually created this fruit salsa in the winter using canned fruit. If you're following the Weight Watchers program, this fruit salsa is an excellent low-point dessert or appetizer!
Store this fruit salsa in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
I was never much of a meat and fruit salsa gal until I tried THIS tropical fruit salsa with meat. It goes phenomenally well with chicken or fish but it was completely amazing on grilled pork! So if you are looking for a healthy and easy to make fruit salsa that’s a little different from the ordinary, give this one a try!
