Fresh Apple Salsa Recipe



         Salsa - Spanish term for sauce, well this is known for many. We have varieties of Salsa dips though the Tomato version is the most famous. I love fruit salsas too...and the pineapple variety is my favorite. With a twist to the regular version I tried this Fresh apple salsa - Trust me, with a sweet, sour taste this was incredibly yummy to scoop.





Ingredients : (Servings : 4)
Crispy Green Apples - 1 cup (diced small)
Sweet Corn Kernels - 1/4Steamed)
cup(
Red grapes - 1/4 cup (halved)
Red Onions - 1/4 cup (Finely chopped)
Cilantro - 2 tablespoon (Finely Minced)
Honey - 1 teaspoon
Lemon juice - 1 teaspoon
Salt - a generous pinch
Pepper powder - a generous pinch
Red Chilli Flakes - a generous pinch (totally optional)
Jalapeno pepper - 1 small (Seeded and minced - optional)


Method:
  • Toss in all the ingredients in a bowl, Stir well. Serve with any type of Nachos. If preferred cold, do refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.






My Notes:
  • Please use crispy apples, because they taste better and give a great crunch.
  • For more juicy texture add in some fine chopped tomatoes too.
  • Other fruits and vegetables like Pineapple, Avocado, Shredded Carrots can also be used.
  • This combination can also be used as a side spread inside hot dogs instead of cole-slaw.
  • You can use this as a side salad too.
