What’s Summer Without Smoothies?

Fruit Salsa — The Perfect Combo of Sweet & Spicy!

We have all of the highest quality frozen fruits available that will be the perfect addition to any salsa.

A peach salsa is perfectly appropriate for summertime peach season. Dice some tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeños with your peaches, mincing some garlic and squeezing some lime juice to finish it off. This is a great alternative as it lessens the acidity of traditional salsa and gives a sweet and refreshing flavor. This recipe could easily be created with Wawona’s pears and plums, too. Doing a mixed fruit salsa would also be a great addition to any operation for the summer season.
