Strawberry Mango Salsa and Cinnamon Pita Chips

Kelly and I were looking for a light appetizer for Memorial Day.  We found a yummy one!  It's based on the recipe here, but I lightened up the red onion and was happy with the results.  It's a refreshing taste and a great way to start to the unofficial celebration of summer.


Ingredients for Strawberry Mango Salsa:

1 1/2 cup finely diced strawberries (about 16 ounces)
1 1/2 cup finely diced mango (about 2)
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Directions:

Mix all ingredients, cover and refrigerate for at least an hour to allow all flavors to meld.


All ingredients mixed together.  Yum!!!


Ingredients for Cinnamon Pita Chips

4 pitas - without pockets
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Melt butter.  Mix cinnamon and sugar together.
Place pitas on a cookie sheet and brush with melted butter, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Use a pizza cutter to cut each pita into 8 wedges
Bake at 350 for 8 minutes

Put a spoonful of salsa on each pita chip and enjoy!
