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


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!
