Yum! My husband was downright scared of this experiment, even though he loves apple salsa and watermelon salsa. But when he tasted it, he loved it. TIP: Make the salsa without the banana ahead of time to allow the flavors to mingle. If you make it very much ahead of time, you might even wait on the cilantro. Then add the banana/cilantro sometime during the last hour - might be able to stand another banana at that - at least another half, and our banana was not small. OTHER CHANGES NEXT TIME? The fresh ginger I used had been peeled for a little while, so maybe that's the reason, but we could barely taste the ginger, even after allowing it to sit for a bit. So we'll put in the called for amount, allow to sit a bit, and then season to taste as needed. Happened to throw in a banana pepper, and that was a hit, but would add several. Had no habanero, & only added a touch of jalapeno. Spice doesn't come through this terribly fast....... (used one slice of pickled jalapeno with a good bit of juice, no heat, my husband liked it anyway though he likes heat). Only put in 2 T of cilantro, and that not ahead of time. That was just right for those of us who think that cilantro tastes like soap (which is a genetic thing, I hear tell). A bit of rice, a bit of fish, and a lot of Caribbean Cole Slaw (from this site) and all these veggies in this salsa made a plate of full of yum without guilt. Anyway, thanks for another fun recipe! Will make again for sure.
