3 cups finely chopped Gala apples
1 cup finely chopped white onion
Juice of 2-3 limes
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Pepperoncini peppers, to taste
Salt, to taste
Mix it all up and put in the fridge to let the flavors meld for at least an hour. Overnight is ok, too.
I juice the limes as I'm chopping the apples. You can also use store-bought lime juice, if you prefer. Just squirt a little on the apples as you get them chopped.
The spiciness of the salsa can be adjusted by the spiciness of the pepperoncini peppers you buy and also by whether you include the seeds. Including the seeds makes it hotter.
You really just need enough lime juice to moisten the mixture and to keep the apples from turning brown. The acid in citrus fruits will stop the oxidation that causes cut apples to turn brown.
A food chopper or food processor makes quick work of chopping the apples and the onion.
Serve as an appetizer with white corn chips.
Good on top of grilled chicken.
