Grilled Apple Salsa

I love this time of year. Autumn, fall is my favorite time of year. Football is in high gear, NASCAR is in it's play off stage and the cool nights are all welcome things. But one of my favorite things about fall is apples! Better yet, grilled apples! This recipe is yet another way to use apples from the grill. This apple salsa goes well with pork, chicken and fish and you can substitute and use your favorite type of apple.

Grilled Apple Salsa

1 granny smith apple
1 red delicious apple
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 cup cilantro chopped
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 red onion diced
1 tomato diced
1/8 cup of chopped walnuts
1 tsp cinnamin

Core and slice apples approx 1/2 " thick. Brush both sides with olive oil and place on grill over high heat. Cook both sides for about  2 minutes or until golden brown. (Don't worry about pretty grill marks, you will be dicing the apple later.) You may use apple, mesquite or hickory wood for smoke. Dice apples and mix in remaining ingredients. Serve with grilled chicken, pork chops or seafood.

Tip: For plating purposes as well as just adding a twist, grill fresh pineapple slices and spoon the apple salsa into the hole in the pineapple that you made when coring it.

I love fruit salsas - never tried one with apple though. Love your blog! Grilling is the one thing I want to learn to do more of!

I'm glad you're here. One thing I should have mentioned in recipe, if you let this salsa set up for about 30 minutes before serving, the flavor is much better.

Thanks for reading!!
