Apple season is one of my favorite times of the year. Every fall, my family heads to a local apple orchard to enjoy the fall air, run through a corn maze, and of course, pick apples.
While apples make for a good pie or crisp, they also add a fun element to salsa. Apple salsa is crunchy, crisp, and refreshing. It goes well with grilled chicken, pork chops, tacos and makes a great snack with your favorite tortilla chips. Enjoy!
- 2 large apples chopped (1 or 2 varieties)
- ¾ cup red onion chopped (about ½ of large onion)
- 1 red pepper chopped
- ½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts (be sure not to over-chop the walnuts the flavor will get lost in the salsa
- 1 - 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- juice and zest from 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons honey
- pinch of salt to taste
- ½ - 1 jalapeno chopped (optional if you like a little heat)
