Salsa is such an excellent flavor booster to so many dishes: tacos, nachos, burritos, or even by itself! And in the heat of summer, salsa makes for a delicious appetizer or an afternoon snack. But we thought we’d give salsa a summer spin by removing the heavier ingredients and replacing them with mangos and apples!
This salsa has a lot of acidic ingredients which do well to cut down on the fattiness of fish or carnitas tacos. And because the ingredients are marinated in a special dressing, the longer you wait to try some, the more fused together the flavors will be!
Bust out the tortilla chips; this salsa is a game changer!
Mango And Green Apple Salsa
- 1 green apple
- 1 mango
- 1/3 cup cilantro
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1/3 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 3 tablespoons olive oil (additional olive oil for cooking)
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- Combine orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, and vinegar in a mixing bowl.
- Stir in your minced garlic, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
- Dice your mango and apple into pieces that are about 1″ long and 1/2″ around. Then mince your cilantro, and onion.
- In a medium saucepan, saute your mango, apple, cilantro, and onion in the additional olive oil for 5 minutes. This will bring extra flavors out of the mango and apple.
- Toss your sauteed ingredients in with your wet ingredients. Make sure your dressing covers all of the sauteed ingredients.
- Chill before serving on top of tacos, nachos, or serve with chips for a simpler treat!
