Apple-Mango Salsa


* 1 apple skinned and diced (Any variety would work, See Note.)
* 1/2 cup skinned and diced mango (use a ripe but firm variety).
* 1/4 cup diced red onions
* 1 medium sized tomato, seeds removed and diced.
* 1 jalapeno pepper sliced thin
* 2 tbsp chopped mint leaves
* Salt and Pepper to season
* For the dressing:
o 1 tbsp jalapeno jelly
o 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice

Method (How to Cook)

To make the dressing, whisk together the jalapeno jelly and the lime juice till the jelly is broken up into tiny pieces.

Add all the remaining ingredients and toss well to coat. Season with salt and pepper.


* Use the yellow color Golden Delicious apple for this, since the flesh of it stays white longer than other varieties.
* Apple tend to darken after cutting. Rub the apple pieces with a piece of lime to avoid the discoloration. For this recipe, after the apple is diced, sprinkle a little lime juice and toss to coat to keep it from darkening.
* Do not mix the dressing ahead of time, since the salsa will tend to get watery if kept for a while.
* Use store brought jalapeno jelly, it adds a nice kick, but you can skip that if you don’t have it, just use lime juice for the dressing. With all these tasty ingredients, it won’t really be missed.

The salsa was sweet and tangy and spicy at the same time. The apple pieces added a nice crunch to it. This salsa will go great with grilled meat and seafood. Or just serve with plain nachos.
