MIXED FRUIT SALSA



I prepared it for myself and loved it immensely. Off course I did not have any kind of chips with it, its for the others. As a healthy lunch or as an appetiser, it is a delight either way. Just back from a trip from my hometown, I need to shed few kilos. Its no magic, hence we need to work hard on it. This urge takes me on a wonderful tour of so many healthy recipes posted by the talented chefs. I have really come across very good recipes of salads and salsas. What I do not prefer is using the store bought salad dressings. What I love about salsa is that it can be done so simply and we can add innovation to it. The mix and match option works here so well.

This time I prepared a mixed fruit salsa as I had few of them readily available at home. Though refrigerated, everything has a shelf life. So better to use them up wisely. The fruits I used here are pomegranate, orange, apple, cucumber. It was so fun doing it in so less time.

INGREDIENTS :
Orange : 1small
Pomegranate : 1/2small cup
Apple : 1small
Cucumber : 1medium[i used the crunchy Japanese one]
Coriander Leaves :1tbsp[chopped]
Green Chilli : 1[chopped]
Onion : 1small[chopped]
Lemon Zest : 1/2tsp
Lemon Juice : 1tbsp
Salt : A pinch
Sugar : 1/4tsp

METHOD :
Wash all the ingredients. Peel the orange and cut into small pieces. Cut the other fruits into small pieces. Peel and get the pomegranate seeds out.

Peel, wash and chop the onion. Wash and chop the coriander leaves and green chillies.

Prepare a tsp of lemon zest and a tbsp of lemon juice from a medium sized lemon.

Take everything in a serving bowl and toss well. A little tamarind juice should also do justice.

Have it fresh whether we serve it with chips or have it just like that. It is quite filling.
