This is for the contest and I am using ingredients that I would have never thought of using in a salsa. The salsa is not cooked and easy to prepare; therefore, the ingredients have a nice tasty crunch to them.

- 1 cup frozen tart cherries, drained,coarsely chopped

- Combine sugar, cinnamon and (cayenne, if using) in a small bowl.

I am so sorry, but this was not good at all. I normally love fruit salsa, but this one didn't make the grade.
I just had to make this it was so different! This was so full of flavor. I use dried cherries and frozed rhubarb everthing else I followed. Oh wait I did use Cinnamon Butter by LAU =^..^=DEE Cinnamon Butter for the pitas (which I didn`t know how much so I used 6 large pocketless pitas)place them right on the rack no pan and they took 15 minutes. This salsa is delish. A must try.
I made these chips on a wim and love them so much!!! I havent tried the salsa yet. I am waiting for the summer.
