Berries I Prefer To Use In Fruit Salsa

When I make This Simple Summer Fruit Salsa, I prefer to use fresh strawberries and raspberries. I love the sweet flavor both berries give when combined in the salsa. I also love the deep red color of the fruit salsa with both of these berries. Feel free to add any berries that will compliment each other when making your fruit salsa!

Steps To Make Simple Summer Fruit Salsa

Fruit Salsa is a combination of diced fruits that pair well together. You want to start by dicing your apple and squeezing lemon juice over them to keep it from turning brown. Dice strawberries, kiwis, and cut raspberries in half. The raspberries will break apart more as you stir the fruit salsa together. Add fruit to a medium size mixing bowl, and add fruit preserve and sugar. Gently stir together, mixing all those wonderful sweet flavors together.
