pear

Be the envy of the cafeteria with this fruity salsa that’s served with graham crackers for dipping.  It’s also great as an afterschool snack – adults can make quick work of chopping up the fruit, and kids can help by tossing it all together.

Ingredients:

  • 1 USA Pear, cored and finely chopped
  • 1 apple, cored and finely chopped
  • 2 kiwifruit, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 orange, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Cinnamon graham crackers

Preparation:

Combine chopped fruit in a medium-sized bowl. Pour honey and lemon juice over fruit and gently toss. Scoop up bites of fruit salsa using cinnamon graham crackers.

Serves: 4

Take it to school for lunch: Pack a serving of salsa in an air-tight container, with cinnamon graham crackers for dipping stored in a separate baggie.
