What's the best apple for apple salsa?

Fruit salsa is a much lighter, healthier alternative to everyday condiments or dips like queso, guacamole, and barbecue sauce. Apples brighten and freshen up any salsa recipe while adding a bit of natural sweetness. Try using it as a topper for fish tacos or a dip for chips.

Crisp apples with a good bite are the best for making apple salsa. SweeTango® and Honeycrisp are two of the crunchiest apples making them a perfect option, but Granny Smith adds a nice tartness or Piñata® for when you need a little extra sweetness.
