This is a fresh salsa that I submitted to an apple cooking contest. I don't like spicy salsas so it's more flavorful than hot, but you can spice it up however you want. I used 'on-the-vine' tomatoes because of their juiciness. I toasted my own tortilla chips in the oven for 3 minutes on each side then cut them size. I didn't want the oil and salt from store bought chips, but try whatever kind of chips you want.

Drain some of the accumulated juices and transfer salsa to a bowl; refrigerate until chilled.

I am the queen of starting recipes w/o making sure I have all the supplies. ha ha. No chives so skipped. No fresh basil used dry. I had a mutsu apple. The cilantro and lime cut down the sweetness of the jicama and mutsu apple. This salsa would be great on many things ie bruschetta tortilla chips maybe a fajita. Read More

This has a great blend of flavors and is a good alternative to those spicy salsas although I wouldn't hesitate to add diced jalapeno. Read More
