1 1/2 - cups coarsely chopped fresh pineapple
1/2 - cup fresh blackberries
2 - tablespoons agave nectar or honey
2 - teaspoons fresh lime juice
Pinch salt
4 - 8 inches flour tortillas
2 - tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 - cup cajeta or dulce de leche
1 - large banana, sliced
1/2 - cup whipping cream
Cajeta or dulce de leche


For fruit salsa, in a medium bowl combine pineapple, blackberries, agave nectar, lime juice, and salt; set aside.
For the quesadillas, lightly brush one side of each tortilla with the butter. Place the tortillas, butter side down, on cutting board or waxed paper. Spread 2 tablespoons cajeta or dulce de leche over half of each tortilla. Top with banana slices. Fold over tortilla and gently press down.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat for 1 minute. Cook quesadillas, two at a time, over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until light brown, turning once. Transfer to cutting board and cut into wedges.

In a small bowl beat whipping cream with an electric mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form. To serve, place quesadilla wedges on a serving plate. Top with whipped cream and fruit salsa. Drizzle with additional cajeta or dulce de leche..
