If you’ve been around these parts for a while, then you might have noticed that I have a thing for salsas. If you are just tuning in for the first time, allow me to introduce you to Avocado Feta Salsa; Orange, Grape and Feta Salsa, and now Apple Avocado Salsa.

Yes, yes. I like salsa.

Here’s another if.

IF things were done my way, I would much rather stuff my belly with Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls and Chocolate Vanilla Eiskaffees. All day long. But because I overdid it a week or two ago, now I’m going to punish us with lighter stuff.

Why couldn’t things like Black Forest Brownies be a part of our recommended daily intake. Geez!

Looks like this weekend is going to be all about balancing out the scale. Blah!

You know what’s cool about this salsa? Well, it’s cool. Like chill. Like cold. And it’s summery. It screams! summer.

Colorful, fresh, real, raw. Doesn’t get healthier than that, my peeps.

I was staring at the couple of Granny Smith’s in my fruit bowl and instead of just reaching over and biting into one, I started to think about apple pies. Surprise! I thought, let’s scratch that idea and healthify this granny.

At first I wasn’t sure about the avocado and the apple together, but when the whole honey-lime dressing came into play, I was game. It had to be done.

Also, exactly how much of this salsa I can spoon into my mouth all at once is a secret. I thank the Lawd nobody was home when I first made this because the whole scene was plain barbaric. I wasn’t even worried about a spoon. My hands were my spoon.

This salsa. Such a good idea. I’m patting myself on the back. Might I add that adding an avocado and a poblano chile to an apple salad can only mean one thing – my palate is all grown up and adult-like. Yay for me!

Get your chopping knives ready and a bag of tortilla chips. Or corn chips.

    I am totally okay with lots of different salsa recipes! This is a gorgeous, fresh, and would be perfect alone or on a chip:-) I could use my jalapenos or serranos I am growing in this recipe, YUM! Hugs, Terra

    Kate, I like the summer/fall mashup of avocado and apple. My mouth would be happy to eat this, as it follows my new year’s resolution of adding more avocados in my life in 2013.

    What a very creative and delicious looking salsa! Like you – I could live on chips and salsa so I’m always on the prowl for another salsa recipe. Thanks for this one!

    Hey this is such a great timing! My mom told me she had one avocado in the fridge that we need to eat soon. I thought of making sandwich (again) but this is much better idea! We’ll try this tomorrow!

  6. Stacy | Wicked Good Kitchen

    Ooh! I’m loving this apple salad with avo thang…especially with the honey lime dressing! Going barbaric with food is totally acceptable. Thanks for sharing, Kate!

  7. Laura Dembowski

    I was just saying how it would be so awesome if pie and cinnamon rolls could be healthy. Luckily I love healthy foods too, and the flavor combo in this sounds amazing!

  8. Valerie

    What a beautiful way to balance out the ‘bad.’ (I’d still want several black forest brownies for dessert.) 😉

  9. Maria | Pink Patisserie

    Oh my goodness this looks divine. And I’m so glad to know that I’m not the only one who’s ever gone barbaric in the kitchen over something yummy. Love it!

  10. Nancy P.@thebittersideofsweet

    Apples and avocado and honey lime dressing! I think this makes a great combination and would be so flavorful!

  11. Caroline

    Kate, this sounds like my kind of salsa! I LOVE that combination of sweet and savory! This is so creative…I’m going to make it tomorrow for some friends who are coming over! Can’t wait to try it! 🙂
