Tropical Fruit Salsa

My Friends!

It is like the summeriest of summers out there. For the most part we are getting gorgeous weekends which is AH-MAZE-ING. The week days have been rather rainy; I think I heard them say on the news that it has been one of the wettest July’s in history…blah! As long as my weekends can be spent outside soaking up the sun and working on my tan I am a happy chica. If you throw in a pool I’ll be extra happy!

I am writing this blog post as I watch the marathon of the Hunger Games because I can’t tear myself away. I could literally watch these over and over. Clearly, I am still a 13 yr. old girl on the inside (er, outside?). I recently took a personality test for work and it told me that I have the same personality type as Peeta. As I thought about it, I realized that this is probably fairly accurate and explains why I had no interest in the Katniss and Gale love story. It must be that whole bleeding heart, caring about anyone and everyone thing that we have in common. I will take it! Side note: how do you feel about personality tests? I happen to think they are pretty accurate but I don’t know if others agree. It can be a tough pill to swallow when you read a summary of all your shining attributes and perhaps, some of your less awesome attributes. I guess, you are who are. I know I am who I am.

Anyway, if you have been a long time follower of HPB then you might have seen this recipe before. Back in the day when we lived in DC. I wanted to bring it back and boost the photo quality since it is a great recipe and the pictures I had before did not do it justice (don’t bother looking, I already trashed it). I look back at a lot of my older posts and think about giving them an upgrade. As a blogger I do wonder about the value of taking time to go through the posts every now and then to see which ones could benefit from an update. I feel like it is my job to give you newer content and new recipes but it might not be worth it to take a look at some of my older content. To my fellow bloggers, what say you?  Do you update your content and if so, how frequently do you do this? Leave your thoughts in the comments. 

As another note on this recipe I will say that you certainly don’t need to make your own chips but why wouldn’t you? I have learned that it is always more fun to make your own chips or tortillas. The other benefit of course is adding your own toppings like I do here (cinnamon & sugar). I learned how to make this recipe with the homemade chips but I wont fault those who’d like to save the time and purchase their own chips. If it helps, it is actually very easy and fun to do!

I like to bring this dish to summer brunches or picnics because it is a bit different from the other dishes you will see on the picnic table. It is also a sure way to impress your friends and family when you display it in a pineapple. It could be considered a dessert or appetizer depending on your mood. It has always been a crowd pleaser and I don’t think anyone will complain no matter when you decide to put it on the table. I hope you enjoy it!
