Green Apple And Cucumber Salsa

Makes: About 2 cups

Ingredients:
1 large Granny Smith apple, cored and diced into ¼-inch pieces (keep peel on for color)
1 medium cucumber or 2 small cucumbers, diced into ¼-inch pieces (keep peel on for color)
½ large red onion, diced into ¼-inch pieces
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh mint, finely chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon black pepper

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper and stir to combine. Taste and adjust flavors and seasoning as desired.

Let salsa marinate for at least 30 minutes before serving for best results. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to one week. Serve with grilled fish, chicken and pork, or atop chips, toast and salads.

For additional flavor, add diced avocado just before serving.
