Chicken with Homemade Green Apple Salsa
-Francine Segan, adapted from Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires
Gourmet, but very simple to make. And, it’s healthy too! The recipe comes from Canyon Ranch, a spa in the Berkshires.
All you do is chop a few things for an incredible homemade salsa and mix a few other things for a great dry rub for the shrimp.
You’ll find yourself making the salsa and rub over and over again. They’re great with shrimp and tofu too!
