The bold spiciness of salsa, combined with the fruity flavors of fresh apricots.
By Abby Himes
Summer: the season of grilling, eating outside on patios, and watching the sun fade away into the refreshing night air. Apricots mark the beginning of summer with a growing season of May-August. Fresh apricots have a firm, not overly juicy, slightly tart, taste, which is so different from the dried version. It was the perfect addition to my summer time staple, salsa. I served it with chicken tacos with fresh local corn on the side, but all you really need is a bag of chips.
- 2 Whole Apricots, chopped
- ½ Fresh Lime, juiced
- 1 (5g) teaspoon Salt
- ½ (2g) teaspoon Red Wine Vinegar
- 1 Whole Medium Tomato, finely chopped
- 3 Tablespoons (38g) White Onion, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons (8g) Jalapeno, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon (7g) Orange Blossom Honey
- 1 Tablespoon (3g) Cilantro, finely chopped
- Finely chop the tomato, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro.
- Combine in a medium sized bowl.
- Sprinkle with salt, red wine vinegar, and lime juice, stir until mixed.
- Chop the apricots, remove and discard the stone, and add to the mixture.
- Drizzle with honey and stir well.
