Apple Salsa - (relish)

Makes about 2 cups

This delicious salsa is anything but traditional.  Actually, it is very traditional if you call it a relish instead of salsa, but then, there is a trend currently to call anything chopped up and served to enhance other foods a salsa.  To me salsa has tomatoes, onions, chilies and cilantro – but then, I’ll go along with the fad – and call this apple stuff salsa.  Phooey!  It’s a relish.  But by what ever name, it’s a damn good accompaniment to a cold meat and cheese plate.  Try it with grilled poultry or pork or beside a fruit and cottage cheese plate.  No matter how you serve it I think you will find it delightfully zesty, yet refreshing.

2 or 3 tart apples, cored and chopped small
The  juice from 2 or 3 limes
1 fresh jalapeño or Serrano chili, seeded and minced
1 fresh Anaheim chili, seeded and chopped small
About 1/2 cup diced sweet purple onion
1 green onion, cut into thin rings, including most of the green
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint leaves
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger root
Sugar to taste
Salt and fresh, coarse ground black pepper to taste
