Recipe of the Week
I happened across this recipe in an old library book (which I can’t remember the name of now–dang it!). And, I know what you’re thinking: APPLE salsa!?!? But, trust me, it is delicious! The tart apples and lime juice are perfectly balanced by the creamy avocado and zippy cilantro. I get compliments on this stuff whenever I take it to a potluck of any kind; it’s also especially great when served with fajitas. Plus, it looks gorgeously festive for the upcoming Holiday season! Enjoy!
1 Cup Granny Smith (or other tart) apple, diced
1/2 Cup ripe avocado, peeled and diced
1/4 Cup sweet red pepper, diced (as you can see from the picture, I also used some yellow peppers)
1/4 Cup purple onion, diced
1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons jalapeño, seeded and minced (I never actually use this, because we like it a little less spicy!)
1/2 teaspoon lime zest
1 1/2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 small clove garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and toss well. Make an hour or two ahead for best flavor results. Yield: 2 Cups.
