I made this because I pretty much had all the ingredients, however I made some changes. <br/>I added celery and I used parsley instead of cilantro as I didn't have cilantro and only used a<br/>jalapeño. I also added white onion. I was trying to use up the odds and ends in my vegetable drawers.

This sour sweet and parfumed salsa is wonderful.
I have many apples from the garden (yellow, not red, sorry) and I always try to use them in the kitchen. Apples are soooo versatile.
Your recipe is wonderful and really tasty, I'm glad I had all the ingredients on hand!
Cilantro and lime juice are very important as well give the salsa time to rest prior use.
Thanks a lot!
