Tomato Salsa with Fruit Recipe

Classic tomato salsa is a wonderful thing, no doubt about it. It is a staple at snacks and meals and there is admittedly a lot of variety even within this single subcategory of salsa. However, sometimes you cannot resist trying to improve on a classic. While the results may not ever supplant the original, there are undeniably some variations on this tried and true theme, which are well worth making.

For example many cooks enjoy mixing things up by adding some different ingredients to their salsa, such as in the following tomato salsa with fruit recipe. This recipe adds peaches, pineapple, and tart green apple to the usual blend of tomatoes, onions, and jalapeno peppers, with spectacular results.

Bursting with fresh fruit flavors which perfectly complement the tomatoes and other, more traditional salsa ingredients, it is hard to imagine anyone not loving this salsa. It may not become your standby tortilla chip dipping salsa, but as a change of pace from the usual, this tomato salsa with fruit recipe is one well worth trying out.

Apart from a tiny pinch each of cumin and sugar, every ingredient in this salsa recipe is fresh, and that always offers a Mexican flair. Mexican cooks are proud of using good quality, locally sourced, and above all, fresh, produce. Fresh is the name of the game if you want an authentic south of the border result, regardless of which dish you are making, a salsa or something else.

You might save a couple of minutes by popping open a can of something rather than peeling and dicing its fresh equivalent, but you will also be sacrificing flavor, so use fresh wherever possible, and that applies not only to this salsa but to pretty much every recipe on this site! If you are into fresh fruits and vegetables though, or just keen on eating more or getting the family to eat more, this is a fabulous recipe. Nobody can resist fresh produce when it is combined in this way, with chili, lime and cumin, to add a terrific taste, and a nice bowl of crunchy chips on the side.
