Valley Fig Growers

Pita Crisps with Apple, Ginger and California Fig Salsa

Serves 6


3 pita bread, 8-inch diameter

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


18 Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Figs, chopped

2 tart apples, peeled and finely chopped

1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

Large pinch ground cinnamon

3 tablespoons apple juice

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat an oven to 375 F. Tear each loaf of pita into 2 separate rounds. Cut each round into 8 wedges. Place the pita on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, sprinkle with salt and toss together. Bake in the oven, tossing occasionally, until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on the baking sheet.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the dried figs, apples, ginger, cinnamon, apple juice, lemon juice and the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. To serve, place the salsa in a small bowl and place in the center of a larger platter. Surround with the pita crisps. Serve.
