End of Summer Salsa

Quick, #Easy #Fruit #Salsa #Recipe with our fave cinnamon sugar @tortillaland chips ohsweetbasil.com


Years ago we made a really delicious Fruit Salsa, but it was back in the early years, so there was a little updating that needed to happen. It’s actually kind of funny to go back through my old recipes. Gosh, things were pretty embarrassing. First of all, I hardly talked, “We made a really yummy chicken with a flavorful chutney. Try it!” It’s not like you need forever long posts, but a little more information is never bad. And then there are the photos. Oh, the photos. Take a gander at this Pretend Orange Chicken and Teriyaki Ginger Salad Dressing for a great example. Wow. The recipe is actually really delicious, but we took the pictures at night, on the kitchen table with all of our lights on and got really close to the food so you really don’tn know what the heck you are looking at.

I’m not saying it’s always bad to get super close to your food. I mean, look at the above photo. I couldn’t help it! All of those cinnamon sugar chips and that glazed over, juicy fruit was screaming for attention! I’m still really working on my photography and probably always will be, but can we all agree that things are definitely better?


Anyway like I said, us bloggers just didn’t know any better in the beginning. We were just snapping a quick photo of our food so that you would know what it looks like. Little did we realize that a close up of yellowy fruit really wasn’t helping all that much. I’m slowly but surely working on updating the old and I hope you’ll head back to visit some of them as I post the updates. The picture may have been horrible, but this fruit salsa is seriously wonderful. Just marvelous. Make it. Eat it. Live a happier life.

  1. Another great way to get kids eating more fruit! We love chips and salsa, so I think this twist will be very popular over here.

  3. Oh wow, this is the perfect snack 🙂 I love it!

  4. This looks gorgeous! And I know exactly what you mean about older posts. Seriously, I have this one on my blog for stuffed artichoke hearts. Look it up. Or actually don’t, it’s bad. Sooooo bad. 🙂

  5. I’m laughing because I need a camera asap. My point-and-shoot broke so I want to upgrade to a dslr. In the meantime, I have been taking all food photos with my iPhone. Gasp! I know, trust me. That being said, it frustrates me to even think about going back and re-shooting all the old recipes even though the images are awful!

  6. These photos are GORGEOUS. And I am so addicted to fruit salsa this summer. Yum!

  7. ooooo you take great photos and that salsa looks soooo soo yummy!

  8. I feel you, my earlier post were awful!
    These photos are gorgeous and the salsa is SO my kind of salsa! YUM!
