Notes

Take It Down A Notch – If you have a Pre-K or young Tiny Chef and are worried about slicing and chopping, you can prep the fruit beforehand. Peel and pit the mango and hull the strawberries. If you cut the mango into “spears” little hands will easily dice it. You can also purchase some Cinnamon Pita or Tortilla chips. Kick It Up A Notch – If you have an older Tiny Chef and don’t think it will be challenging or time-consuming enough, try making two versions of the salsa, one as presented here, and one spicy version. Simply add a finely chopped jalapeno (make sure to take precautions with the seeds and wash hands well after chopping) and substitute cilantro for the parsley. This is a good way to see how adding or subtracting just a few ingredients can change a recipe.
