This Tropical Fruit Salsa is a delicious summertime treat. You can develop a real passion for this salsa, since it is low in calories and very flavorful. There are no hard-and-fast rules in making salsa. Add or delete ingredients according to your taste. Serve with corn chips (if you eat too many corn chips, then it is not low in calories!) This salsa is also great on fish.
