But I like the idea of brunch, and I recently saw this great fruit salsa recipe in Cuisine for Two and thought that would make a great brunch or lunch dish.
Before we go any further, know that I can not honestly say I ate this entire dish. That's because I made one VERY BIG mistake. I ignored their directions to not mix until it's time to serve. I made the dish the night before I was going to eat it and it congealed into fruit mush and the strawberries became a juice. Not great.
Trust me, it's good. Just not after a night in the fridge.
So first, I sliced some strawberries, then kiwi. I also had pineapple chunks and diced peaches on hand.
Meanwhile, I pulled out a frozen pie crust Sean had bought for me. I asked him to buy frozen pie crust thinking he'd buy a sheet that I could easily cut into triangles. Nope, that is not what happened.
Instead, I tried desperately to cut a circle into even-sized triangles to disastrous results. You shall see.
Then brushed the pie chips with butter and sprinkled very generously with cinnamon sugar. I then popped these bad boys in the oven just long enough to turn golden brown.
I think this would be excellent SERVED IMMEDIATELY for brunch. But with time to congeal and basically get gross, it was not good the next day.
ALSO: pie crust is the worst idea for this. It's too flaky to hold up under the weight of the salsa, so I would definitely go with cinnamon pita chips.
