I love brunch. When I lived in New York brunch was a regular weekly occurrence, like church or soccer practice. Now that I live in middle-America I find brunch to be a bit of a lost art. Here, there's breakfast and there's lunch, but brunch hardly ever makes an appearance anymore.

A friend of mine, and fellow ex-New Yorker, Kate, decided we were going to bring back brunch and do-it-up right. Bloody Marys, good coffee, frittatas, pancakes and big bowl of this fruit salsa for the kids. Now that we're parents the days of sipping our Sunday libations must also be accompanied by the sheer panic of, "What the heck do we feed the minions?"

Luckily this salsa kept them entertained for hours. It's perfect for toddlers to eat with pita chips, as finger food, or even on top of their pancakes. We adults may have had a scoop or two ourselves. It's a great take-along dish when you're fabulous friend turns her kitchen inside-out reliving the glory days of a New York City brunch.


1 cup of diced, peeled apples
1 cup of diced strawberries
1/2 cup of diced, peeled kiwi
1/2 cup of diced pineapple
1 lemon juiced
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 bag of cinnamon sugar pita chips


  1. I mean honestly, this doesn't even need instructions, but okay, here goes…
  2. Add all of the diced fruit to a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl squeeze the lemon juice over the sugar and whisk together until the sugar melts.
  4. Pour the "dressing" over the fruit and toss the ingredients together.
  5. Serve with yummy pita chips, on top of pancakes or nibble with your fingers.
