Fruit Salsa Recipes
This delicious recipe for Vidalia onion and peach salsa is terrific with grilled pork chops, burgers, tacos, or plain chips. Like the Maui onion, the Vidalia is renowned for its sweet, mild flavor. Grown around Vidalia, Georgia, this onion helped the Georgia farmers during the Great Depression. Farmers turned to onions in the hope that they could grow a good crop. When they grew, everyone was surprised that they did not have the usual heat that onions were known for.
Eventually, the Vidalia onion became world famous. Today, the Vidalia onion is the state vegetable of Georgia. They are used in all sorts of delicious recipes like the one we share here. Vidalia onions are a good source of vitamin C and they add a lot of flavor to your cooking. When you select onions in the store, be sure to look for onions that feel firm and heavy for their size. This indicates the onions are fresh and juicy. Use your onion within the week for the best flavor.
Onion salsas are so simple to make, yet they make a big impression. Combining the onion with peaches creates a wonderful taste sensation in the mouth. The soft, sweet peaches mingle with the slightly spicy yet sweet, crunchy onions. The tomatoes, peppers and other ingredients help meld these two primary ingredients together, creating a wonderful salsa that works well for dipping as well as serving as a condiment. Try some with your pork chop or burger next time. You will see why the Vidalia onion made Georgia famous. Continue reading

Fruit can make for great salsa, and especially so when the fruit in question is of the tropical variety. Mango has become a particularly popular fruit for salsa, making a great ingredient for habanero-laced Caribbean style salsas. This tropical fruit salsa includes the ever popular mango as well as another popular tropical fruit: papaya.
The papaya plays a very important role in this salsa recipe, providing a cooling counterpoint to the heat of the jalapeno peppers and the tanginess of the mango and lime. It also makes this salsa a perfect accompaniment to grilled fish and meats as well as an ideal partner for tortilla chips, especially on a warm summer’s day.
If you love mango and papaya, this is one tropical fruit salsa recipe you cannot afford to be without. The sweetness and juiciness of the fruit along with the bite of the peppers, onion, and cilantro is a combination, which simply cannot be beat. Continue reading

Heat your oven to 350 degrees and melt about 2 tbsp of butter. Cut the tortillas into sixths (it’s easiest to do this if you stack them and slice them all at once), brush on both sides with melted butter, sprinkle with a little sugar and cinnamon and place in a single layer on a large baking sheet; use two if needed.
The tortillas will need about 15 minutes in the oven, which is plenty of time to prepare the salsa. Peel and dice the peaches and kiwis and slice the strawberries, removing the tops first. Combine in a large bowl and add the lime juice, sugar, and salt. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary before refrigerating the salsa for 1-2 hours before serving. You may want to drain off some of the liquid before you serve this fruit salsa recipe, depending on how much liquid the strawberries and kiwi release.
Once the cinnamon chips are done, simply set them aside to cool; alternately, you can prepare the chips once the salsa has had a few hours to refrigerate if you would prefer your cinnamon chips while they are still warm. Continue reading
