Blueberry Salsa Dessert is a Perfect Summer Treat!
Most nights I crave something sweet after the kids go to bed. Sometimes I crave something sweet and salty. This blueberry salsa is absolutely perfect for those nights!
Today I'm taking our blueberry fruit salsa recipe and turning it into a refreshing dessert.
I've served this at summer parties or as a quick summer treat for myself. Either way it is perfect!
For the salsa you will need:
- Fresh blueberries
- Fresh strawberries
- Lemon or lime zest
- Lemon or lime juice
Making Cinnamon Chips
If you're enjoying this recipe as a dessert, you can buy store bought cinnamon sugar tortilla chips, blue corn chips or cinnamon sugar pita chips.
Or you can easily make your own cinnamon sugar tortilla chips! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees then mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl then set it aside. Brush your tortillas with melted butter, then sprinkle the tortillas with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Cut each tortilla into triangle wedges. Place the tortillas onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake the tortillas at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or just until they become crisp. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before serving with your fruit salsa.
Prepare Your Fruit Salsa
You can prepare your fruit salsa by chopping up ½ cup of blueberries. Leave the other ½ cup of blueberries whole. Then cut your strawberries into bite sized pieces. Add in the lemon or lime zest, and your lemon or lime juice and mix everything together. Serve.
Additional Salsa Add Ins
You can always add some chopped cilantro, onions or even a little bit of jalapeno for some subtle heat to your salsa if you would like. You can also add some salt and pepper to taste.
It's time to serve up your salsa dessert! Grab your cinnamon sugar tortilla chips and salsa. You can even add some vanilla ice cream or whipped topping if you would like.
A glass of blue curacao lemonade sounds good to go along with your salsa dessert! You could even try serving your fruit salsa on top of some bruschetta with some brie like I did with this watermelon jicama salsa! If you love this dessert salsa, you could also try my watermelon salsa!
