"This recipe was part of a recipe challenge that worked out quite well. Nice heat from the habanero and lovely sweetness from the apricots and pineapples." — mis7up

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!
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.
Excellent! Pairs extremely well with the "Marinated Pork Tenderloin" recipe on this site.
This was a refreshing change, but I have to say make sure your apricots are not too ripe or the salsa will become too mooshy/saucy. Also it tends to discolor a tiny bit overnight. I ended up increasing the pineapple and adding some chopped fresh jalapeno instead of habanero. The rest of the ingredients I added to taste.
