Super Easy // 15 mins // 2 quarts
We do 95% of this in a high-powered blender [a healthy and delicious cook’s best friend] & give it color, flavor & crunch by hand-dicing the red onion finely. If y’all like it HOT, this salsa explodes with chili flavor enveloped in fruity umami!
Knife skill practice [onion fine dice]
3 Ataulfo mangos
1 or 2 Navel oranges
2 Granny Smith apples
1 or 2 Fuji apples, optional
1 or 2 red onions
2 ~ 3 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon fresh or pickled ginger
1 or more HOT favorite chili peppers, optional
2 tablespoons fresh thyme
½ teaspoon each sea salt & black pepper
Optional Additions (mince by hand please)
¼ cup fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh basil
1 tablespoon fresh mint, lemon balm, sweet herb
Step 1: Peel the mangos & cut the flesh from the disk shaped pit. Peel the pineapple, zest the navels & lemons & core the apples. Finely dice the onions.
Step 2: Prep out any optional ingredients. Today, I used 3 cloves of garlic, 1 tablespoon pickled organic ginger, fresh thyme leaves & ONE extremely HOT scorpion chili. Roughly dice all the fruit & add to the blender w/ the citrus juice & zest, salt & pepper to taste & any optional ingredients. Blend to combine. Add a little water if the mix is too thick.
Step 3: Put the onions into a large bowl and stir in the salsa mixture to combine. Taking the few extra minutes to hand-cut the onions makes for a beautiful salsa that has onion crunch in every bite. Onions are one of nature’s most powerful immune-boosting foods. If you’re not a fan yet, don’t put quite as much in... But vow to learn to LOVE them. Your body will thank you.
