Apple Salsa

I love finding creative ways to use leftovers, and because we have pork quite often I sometimes have to get extremely creative. Taco / Burrito bowls are in easy way to use leftovers but they’re not the most creative, so last night I decided to try something a little different and come up with an apple salsa to go in the pork burrito bowls. The salsa turned out better than I expected and is extremely good alone with chips, but it is amazing with the pork, rice and lettuce on the burrito bowl. It’s so good, in fact, that I’m going to have the leftovers tonight. So if you’re looking for something a little different, a little spicy and sweet, give this a try:

Apple Salsa

Dice:
1 apple
1 sweet onion
1 red bell pepper
2 jalapeno (without seeds – optional)

Whisk together / Shake:
1 tablespoon each
apple cider vinegar
lemon juice
lime juice
vegetable oil

Mix all ingredients and add:
1/2 teaspoon each
salt
pepper
garlic powder
parsley
basil

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

I had to get rid of the jalapeno seeds, and that’s where a lot of the heat is, so I needed to add the cayenne pepper to get a little more spice. If you leave the seeds in, or just want a more mild salsa, the cayenne can be left out.
