Costco salsa?

When I went home for winter break, my mom made me this awesome salsa. It was so great that I asked her to make it again (which is rare for me because I love variety). I finally asked her for the recipe and...apparently it's from Costco's free cookbook. Wut.

I'm a cookbook snob. Like I love me some popular cookbooks from restaurants or famous chefs (Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home and The Sweet Spot are examples), and usually turn my nose down to those recipe compilations that grocery stores often hand out for free. But...this salsa was awesome. Like major props to Costco awesome. Like I'm actually considering trying more Costco recipes since I liked the salsa so much. Yup.

From some free Costco cookbook

  • 1 apple (I used golden delicious)
  • 1 small tomato 
  • 1/3 cup finely dice onion 
  • 1/2 jalapeno
  • 1.5 Tbsp lime juice 
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • A couple sprigs of cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Dice your apple, tomato, onion, and jalapeno. Mix together in a bowl with lime juice, honey, cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste. Consume immediately with chips and guac :)


  1. Cookbooks! You have to check out Books For America on 22nd & P. Seriously. All of the books were donated to them and they all sell for $2-$5. They have a wide array of cookbooks, some very random. Some pretty popular and by famous chefs and restaurants! I got a Top Chef cookbook for $4! Nifty! You should check it out ;)
