Prepping Fruit for Fruit Salsa
Prepping the fruit is super easy:
- Core the apples and pears.
- Peel the kiwi and melon.
- Dice everything into uniform bits.
- Combine with the sugar, lime and rum and refrigerate.
For an alcohol-free version, you can substitute rum extract. Fresh lemon juice and zest can also be used instead of lime, and honey could be used instead of sugar.
Other Fruits to Add
Any fresh ripe fruit or berry could be used in this salsa. You can’t go wrong as long as the fruit is firm and sweet.
Here are some variations that are sure to please.
- Shredded coconut
What Goes With Fruit Salsa?
Mojito salsa with fresh fruit is an excellent party dip with tangy lime corn chips, or crispy cinnamon tortillas. Alternatively, you can prepare it as a condiment to add some pizzazz to a simple meat or fish entree. Try it with baked salmon, roasted ham or pork tenderloin.
How Long Will It Last?
This is one of those recipes that’s best consumed on the same day you make it. The lime juice will help prevent the cut apples and pears from quickly browning, but not for more than a day. Pack it into a tightly covered container, refrigerate for at least a couple hours, and plan to serve it ice cold within a day.
Can Fruit Salsa Be Frozen?
Yes, you can freeze this salsa, although for optimal texture it’s not recommended. Fresh fruit and veggies turn to mush when they thaw. If you do want to freeze your fruit salsa, plan on thawing it only slightly and serving when there are still ice crystals in it. It will still be tasty and refreshing.
