Fresh apple salsa makes a great appetizer or snack any time of year. This recipe is a little savory, a little sweet and a little spicy! It’s refreshing and healthy too!
Salsas are such a great snacking food. They are great for parties, potlucks or even just for an afternoon snack. One great thing about salsa is you don’t have to worry about it getting cold or how long it’s been sitting out.
And salsas are fun! You can use so many different ingredients and they can be sweet or savory or in this case, both.
This salsa would be really festive for a fall gathering or holiday party too! Isn’t is so pretty? Here’s a few other of my favorite seasonal dips:
Crisp, tart apples work best in this salsa, but you can use a variety of apples such as granny smith, Fuji, Jonagold or Honeycrisp. Check out this article from Taste of Home to learn more about how to use apples in recipes.
This salsa will last up to 3 days when stored in the refrigerator.
This salsa pairs well with sweet cinnamon and sugar pita chips or with more savory options like tortilla chips or crackers.

Hi Sandy, You could do sweet or savory. Cinnamon and sugar pita chips would be good or crackers. A spoon works too 🙂
