FRUIT SALSA WITH CINNAMON STRIPS

FURIT 1 My daughter in law Lisa is always bringing us something new to try. She brought this salsa to a summer BBQ a few years ago. We all went crazy over the cinnamon in the salsa and strips. You will too!! It is refreshing and fun to eat. Cinnamon has always been a favorite spice of the Mexican culture.
