Salsa is wonderful. There are literally hundreds of variations you can create when making salsa. Just go browse your grocery store salsa section for proof. You are likely to find black bean salsa, corn salsa, fruit salsa, plain salsa and more. This particular salsa combines the heat of hot sauce, the sweetness of apricots and the zesty touch of cilantro. Combine those ingredients with a little garlic, onion and love and you have a topping suitable for hundreds of dishes.
- Green Bell Pepper
- Chili Powder
- White Pepper
- Black Pepper
- Apple Cider Vinegar
The Kitchen Experiment:
- Dice the onion, tomato, jalapenos, bell pepper and apricots and place in a large bowl. I usually use about 3 tomatoes, 1 onion, 2-4 jalapenos, 1 bell pepper and about 6 apricots.
- Mince the garlic or buy minced garlic. Add what you think is best. As I have said before, I like a lot of garlic so I use a fair amount…but I never measure it. Add the garlic to the bowl
- Sprinkle chili powder, white pepper and black pepper into the bowl. Again, add these based on your taste preferences.
- Add a splash of apple cider vinegar and drizzle the entire top of the ingredients with grenadine. The vinegar and grenadine with help to give a sweet and sour aspect to the salsa.
- Add salt to taste. I use sea salt and use it vary sparingly.
- Top your favorite dish with your apricot salsa.
