Pineapple Salsa

This is everything that's good about summer.

Fresh juicy pineapple paired with the spicy bite of jalapeno and the sweet crisp of red onion. Lime juice and cilantro.

It's simple, right? I know! But I feel like people just don't know about the greatness that is this salsa. 

And I want them to! 

All it requires is some dicing along with some mid-prep pineapple snackage.

The pineapple is sweet and tart and bursts in your mouth, and the jalapeno adds a nice contrasting heat and crunch. Red onions make all things better. And though I used to think that cilantro tasted like wet rag, I do enjoy it in salsas and other Mexican inspired recipes.

I welcome the cilantro in this keeper!


Pineapple Salsa
from the kitchen of SteakNPotatoesKindaGurl
    • 2 cups fresh pineapple, diced
    • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
    • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
    • 1 jalapeno pepper, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
    • Juice and zest of 1 lime
    • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt

    Add all ingredients to a large bowl and toss together. Salsa can be served immediately or covered and chilled until ready to use.

    This salsa is perfect as a dip or appetizer with chips or tortillas. Or most definitely as a topping on fish, pork, chicken, or anything else you can think of.

    Or just served straight up on a spoon. Whatever floats your boat!

    Peace, and bacon grease!
