I made this for appetizers at Thanksgiving, and served with butter crackers. It was a hit! I even mixed some with a little cream cheese and sour cream as a sort of cheese ball and it's great that way too!

Excellent. It's a great combo of sweet and spicy. I used different kinds of peppers and put in only a little bit of ground ginger. It is still delicious after almost a week in the fridge. Later note - this salsa won 3rd place in a salsa competition last night!

I don't think this recipe is going to please everybody, but we liked it. Admittedly, a tomatillo-based salsa is our absolute favorite, but this was good for a change. I used a very green Granny Smith apple. The flavors worked well. Thanks!

I didn't use the fresh peppers - instead I used about 1/2 tsp of Cheyenne pepper. You really need to let this salsa sit for about 2 hours for the mixture to blend properly. Also - one can reduce the amount of onion. It went well with a grilled chiken kabobs that were seasoned with salt and pepper. This really added the flavor to the meal. I agree with a previous reviewer - its not for everyone, but I really enjoyed the unique combinations of flavors.

I just made this salsa and I think it is absolutely fabulous. The sweetness in the apples contrasting with the hot peppers is an amazing sensation! The fresh ginger definitely gives this salsa a different twist. I had a couple of tomatoes which I diced up as well to add color and I used 4 chili peppers instead of the 2 suggested. Delightful!

Wow, 5 stars for taste, originality, and especially =YUM= the use of cilantro! I've had all kinds of mango or pineapple salsas before, but this was a first. :o)

Best ever. I was hesitant about this because I wasn't sure if it was going to be good, but it was amazing, and a perfect side to serve to guests with dinner. I loved the range of flavours. I used red onion because you didn't specify. This is going to be a favorite. Thanks for sharing!

Very tasty. If I make it again I'll decrease the amount of ginger-- probably halve it. And I felt that a splash of agave nectar (maybe because my apples were very tart) was a nice addition.
