Green Apple Salsa

This Green Apple Salsa is really different and perfect as we look forward to fall! The word I'd use for it is "refreshing". I could actually see julienning everything and serving it as a pickled salad for our Sunday dinner! I'm thinking it would be good with pork:@)
 I didn't plan on peeling the apple, just wasn't paying attention.
And speaking of not paying attention... I only used 1/3 C celery, cucumber and onion too...
Seemed pretty darn good to me:@)
One other suggestion is, taste it after it's all mixed, 
you might want to add a touch of sugar to cut the pucker-you know your crowd...
I didn't add sugar but wanted to toss that thought out there.

Green Apple Salsa-from Lemon Tree Dwelling
1 1/3 C small diced Granny Smith apple-one large apple
2/3 C small diced celery-I used 1/3 C
2/3 C small diced cucumber-I used 1/3 C
2/3 C small diced red onion-I used 1/3 C
1/4 C minced fresh cilantro
1/4 C cider vinegar
2 Tblsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
Mix everything and serve with tortilla chips.

Eat well and have a happy day:@)

  1. What a refreshing salsa Lynn and so pretty too. Local apples should be available soon. Looks like you used a Granny Smith, one of my favorites.

  2. We are just seeing the signs go up at local orchards announcing the apples are ripe for picking. This looks deliciously different.

    Best,

  9. Ooh that sounds really good. That's the type of salad that I would like to receive in a little plastic cup at the deli when I order a sandwich. We have three choices, and I always struggle and get the pasta salad. xo

  10. Hi Lynn, I like Granny Smith apples and this sounds good. I would add a tad of sugar.

    Love the Halloween flowers and the adorable piggies cake. I wonder where they found the cute pigs.

    Hope you had a fun Labor Day.
    xo, Jeanne
