Tangy green apple salsa verde recipe made with granny smith apples and green tomatoes. Jalapenos add a quiet kick to the verde and are the perfect toppings on tacos – Version 2
If you can’t find tomatillos, green apples are always in season and they have the same tang. Add green tomatoes to add texture and even out the flavor.
Have you ever had salsa without a little spice?
No salsa is ever complete without a little spice. In this recipe, the jalapenos step up and provide an amazing kick to the tang from the apple.
I have been known to take a spoon to this salsa and eat it right out of the bowl. It is that good.
I know spicy food is not for everyone, so, feel free to use a less spicy pepper. If you don’t want it spicy, then there is nothing wrong in omitting the pepper completely from this recipe.
Lately, I have been putting a sneaky ingredients in most of my meals. That sneaky ingredient is flax seed meal and it finds its way into every recipe I am making and this verde recipe is no exception.
Yesterday, I added flax seed meal to Potato Curry and there was no difference in the taste.
The potato curry was slightly healthier because of the added protein and fiber.
Green apples are also perfect for making apple butter in the instant pot! Have you tried it?
Flax is so quiet of an ingredient that it is never noticed when used sparingly. However, it provides nutrients to the meal and that makes me happy.
I used this salsa recipe in my pomegranate vegan taco and what a difference it made to it. The pomegranate and apple tasted amazing!
