Green Apple-Chipotle Salsa

Zesty salsa is a western staple, but come apple season, put a new twist on this classic.


1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tbsp cumin seed

2 tbsp molasses

1 tbsp white vinegar

1 large yellow onion, finely diced

6 Granny Smith apples, unpeeled, cored and chopped into bite-size pieces

2 cans chipotle chili peppers

2 tsp fresh oregano, chopped


Heat oil in a heavy nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Sauté onion 2 minutes. Stir in apples, reduce heat to medium, cover and cook 4-5 minutes, or until apples are just softened. Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool. Combine remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor and purée. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Stir chipotle purée into apple mixture. Mix thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
