Fruit Salsa

Happy Friday everyone and happy first day of fall!! Now, that fall is officially here I am dying to put out all of my decorations. Visions of pumpkins, scarecrows and colored leaves are dancing around my head!

I wanted to show you today one of my new favorite, healthy recipes!! It’s easy to make and so delicious!

Pretty simple, eh? It’s very refreshing and fun to eat. Not to mention a nice alternative to chips for a movie night! Jilly and I snacked on this treat a week ago today as we watched Top Gun.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
