Recently I discovered this recipe for Snappy Sun-Maid Salsa in a cookbook I have had for years. We happened to have all the ingredients on hand, so I mixed up a batch. Really, there isn’t too much better than fresh salsa on a warm day. We ate this with chips just like traditional salsa, but the recipe recommends serving it on bruschetta – grab some yummy artisan bread from the bakery and serve it before your next party as an appetizer. I have also seen several recipes featuring a similar salsa served on grilled halibut. Now that is a real summer treat (Father’s day is coming soon) !

You can find this recipe and many others featuring dried & fresh fruit in Family Favorite Recipes.
