What I love about summer is all the fabulous fresh fruits that are available. So when Athens Foods challenged me to create a fun summer appetizer recipe using their convenient, ready to use frozen mini Fillo Shells I knew I wanted to pair them with fruit.

I often serve Strawberry Mango Salsa and Cinnamon Tortilla Chips for summer get togethers. It’s always a hit, but also a little difficult to eat. So I decided it would be fun to use the Athens Mini Fillo Shells to turn it in to an easier-to-eat, easier-to-serve appetizer.

They’re great for a party because you can make the salsa and bake the cinnamon sugar cups ahead of time. Then right before you serve them you can quickly fill the shells with salsa and they’re ready to serve.

My family devoured these. Five of us ate all 30 in less than five minutes. If you’re making them for a party, I’d definitely double the recipe. Your guests will be glad you did.
