Featuring ripe red strawberries, plump blueberries, subtly sweet white jicama and jalapenos for a little heat, this salsa is the ultimate appetizer. Heinen’s offers organic white corn and blue corn tortilla chips under their brand, so grab a bag and get ready to dip into deliciousness.

Summer Fruit Salsa

Now you may be wondering, what the heck is jicama? It’s a potato-like root vegetable with a thick brown outer skin and white flesh that tastes like an apple with a little less sweetness. Often enjoyed raw in dishes like salads and this fruit salsa, it can also be steamed, boiled, sautéed or fried. In addition to its versatility, it’s also low in calories, sugar and fat but has an extremely high fiber content, which makes this appetizer that much better for you.

For this fruit salsa, simply peel the jicama and chop it into small pieces or, if you can’t find jicama, grab dragon fruit from Heinen’s tropical fruit selection. If you need help finding any of these items, ask the Produce Associate at your local Heinen’s. They can even help cut the fruit for you in advance!

Finished with a squeeze of lime, a handful of fresh cilantro and salt, make this simple salsa your go-to party contribution or healthy at-home snack. Each chip-full will taste like fireworks in your mouth!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • It’s Easy to Assemble Thanks to Shortcut Ingredients. The base of this fruit salad is berries, and while you’re welcome to cut them yourself, you can save time without sacrificing freshness by using Heinen’s pre-sliced mixed berry fruit cup instead. They even have one if with dragon fruit!
  • It Has Tropical Flavor. The star of this salad is jicama, a potato-like root vegetable with flavor similar to an apple. Located in the tropical section of Heinen’s Produce Department, a few pieces in the salad will elevate it from average to amazing. Not a fan of jicama? Not a problem! Dragon fruit is a great substitute.
  • It’s Best Served with Tortilla Chips. Just like traditional savory salsa, this sweet fruit salsa is best served with Heinen’s organic corn tortilla chips. Available in traditional and blue corn varieties, the sweet and salty flavor combination is simply unbeatable.
