The Parsley Thief

I follow several food related blogs Saveur being one, but they sometimes link to other blogs.  The Parsley Thief was one they linked to a while ago and I've been following her ever since.  This recipe is one of the reasons you might consider following her.


It sounded good to me on paper, but the Apple Salsa blew me away.  It had that quality that Pico de Gallo has where nothing in there is spicy, but it tastes spicy.  I didn't have a lime when I started this little journey but I am so glad I didn't use lemon juice, I drove to the store and bought a lime.  That flavor sealed it as far as I'm concerned.  If you look really close you will see that I clearly spent way too much time getting the apple diced finely but the texture was worth it.  Everything took a little over an hour to chop, prep and cook for me (plus driving to the store like an idiot time) and I'm fairly fast with a knife so your results will vary.  As Katie (the parsley thief) notes the apple salsa can be made ahead of time as the citrus keeps the apple from oxidizing.  Even 3 days later it still looks pretty in my fridge, so take the time to chop it down into tiny beautiful squares and just toss the bowl you make the salsa in into the fridge.

  6. I need to blog more about the food I eat - not cook, but eat. Blogging about washing the dishes would be far more mundane.
