Fruit Salsa with Ginger Chips Recipe

Publisher Photo
Pineapple, mango and kiwifruit give Christy Johnson's fruit salsa a tropical twist. "This combination of fruity salsa and crisp gingery chips is wonderful on a hot day," she writes from Columbus, Ohio. "I like to serve this with pineapple iced tea, which I make by simply adding some of the drained pineapple juice from this recipe to a pitcher of tea."
