Sweet 'n' spicy apricot salsa

    2 hours 40 min

    A fantastic way of making use of apricots when in-season. They are blended with shallots, peppers, pineapple, tomato, chilli, coriander, cumin and lime juice. The sweetness from the fruit goes exceedingly well with the spiciness from the chilli.

    This was my first attempt at any sort of salsa and I am REALLY pleased with how it came out. It's an amazing blend of sweet and spicy. I added a second Habanero pepper and a little bit more cilantro and pineapple and it was a MAJOR success!  -  22 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My tree had an over abundance of apricots this year. I have a party to go to and thought this sounded tasty so I doubled the recipe. My husband couldn't get over the flavor and even later came in and said what a great taste it left in his mouth. I make lots of salsas and let's just say, half of the salsa I made for the party is staying home, I am not sharing. Can't wait to try on a pork tenderloin tomorrow for dinner.  -  12 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent! Pairs extremely well with the "Marinated Pork Tenderloin" recipe on this site.  -  22 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
