Fruit salsa is always a fresh and fun fruit snack in the summer. It’s an easy snack to enjoy with a backyard barbecue or to send with kids off to summer camp. It’s also a great recipe to have the kids help in the kitchen. Have an adult cut the fruit into a bite small pieces, then the kids can help with mixing all the fruit together.
