Although it can be made year round, Fresh Fruit Salsa is especially good made with fresh local strawberries which always seem to taste better. Preparation time is minimal; the apples dont need to be peeled, and the kiwis can be prepared in just a minute or two by following the easy steps in a previous Quick Cooking article: How to Peel a Kiwi. Once the salsa is assembled, all that is necessary is to spray flour tortillas with a little water and sprinkle them with a cinnamon sugar mixture. The chips take only about 10 minutes to bake.

This recipe is easy enough for kids, although its a good idea to have an adult present while the fruit is being cut. A pizza cutter is ideal for cutting the tortillas into wedges.
