I love cooking, but I’m not very good at sticking to a recipe. I like to just look in the fridge, see what I have on hand and come up with something [hopefully] delicious. I don’t have time for elaborate dinners or ingredient heavy dishes, so I try to keep meals healthy, flavorful, and most importantly simple. Today’s recipe is for a refreshing Green Apple Salsa that can be used several different ways.
GREEN APPLE SALSA – recipe by Shannon Young
1 green apple
1/2 large red onion
Handful of fresh chopped cilantro
[salt, pepper, lemon juice to taste]
Dice or lightly food process [you want it to be slightly chunky] ingredients and serve on pita or tortilla chips!
Toss a few spoonfuls back into the processor for a couple more pulses, then mix with a tablespoon or two of mayonnaise for a crisp and tangy sandwich accompaniment!
Mix a few spoonfuls of the salsa into your ground beef, chicken, or turkey [I made it with my turkey burgers last night and it was delicious] to give your burger some flair!
Add about 1 cup of plain yogurt and liquefy for a great springtime chilled soup! Chop up some fresh dill or mint and toss that in too if you have it handy!
