Pineapple salsa – the ingredients
I love fresh homemade salsa – it’s just sooo different than what you get when you buy pre-made salsa at the store. It took me a while to realize that preservatives really do take away from the flavor of food.
Now, this might look complicated but I promise, it really isn’t.
There are six simple ingredients (plus salt and pepper): pineapple (fresh is best, but canned or frozen will work in a pinch), red or orange bell pepper, jalapeno (for a bit of spice), red onion, garlic, cilantro, salt, and pepper – that’s it!
The hardest part of this recipe is the chopping, but really – it isn’t so bad…and if you want to check out an easy way to cut a pineapple check out this article by Good Housekeeping.
Serving Ideas for Pineapple Salsa
My favorite ways to enjoy this salsa are with chips (as a dip) or as a topping for grilled fish or even chicken. Other ideas might be over fish tacos, over scrambled eggs, as a burger topping, or even in lettuce wraps.
Also instead of pineapple, try other fruits like peach, nectarine, or even mango.
