Triple digits! Can you believe it? That's the rumor for what this weekend's temp is supposed to hit. That's Africa hot! Tarzan couldn't take that kind of hot. Jeebus, it's only been in the low 90's this week and I'm feeling hot and cranky. Well come this weekend, if you're feeling knackered and sweaty and don't want to turn on your oven then try making some of this crisp green apple salsa. It's crunchy, healthy and absolutely delicious and best of all it requires minimal effort. You can pair it with some pita or sweet potato chips and take it to a BBQ or just enjoy it solo in front of the air conditioning. (I won't tell, I promise!)
Crisp Green Apple Tomato (slightly adapted from How Sweet It Is)
2 Granny Smith apples- peeled, cored and chopped
1 yellow bell pepper- chopped
1 saladette tomato- chopped
1/4 medium sweet onion- chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1. Chop/dice all of the fruits and veggies. (Note: You can opt to not peel the apples if the skin doesn't bother you.) Place in a large bowl.
2. Add salt, sugar and lime juice. Toss thoroughly.
3. If it's too tart for you, you can add a pinch more of sugar.
4. You're done. Told you this was a quickie. Enjoy!
