apple salsa recipe

apple salsa recipeFrom your Bariatric Nutrition Team

The crisp fall air means it’s apple picking time again, whether from an orchard or from your local farmers’ market, for a variety of sweet crispy apples. While apples are great for eating as a healthy snack, try something new with your freshly picked apples. This simple, sweet and slightly spicy condiment is a great accompaniment to serve alongside or on top of roasted chicken, pork tenderloin, pork chops or even nice, firm fish.

Makes six servings.

Ingredients:

  • 2 to 3 apples (small to medium) such as McIntosh, Macoun or your favorite crisp, sweet apple, cored peeled and diced
  • ½ red bell pepper, diced
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno or red chili pepper, diced (remove seeds and membrane; if you like a little extra spice leave some of the membrane intact)
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Juice from ½ lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together and serve.
