Pineapple Salsa Recipe

Pineapple Salsa
Today I have for you a real treat for summer. A perfect slightly spicy, light, and colorful summer snack – pineapple salsa. Pineapple salsa is the perfect combination of fruits and vegetables with a little kick. This recipe also happens to be very good for you. Getting the right amount of fruits and vegetables every day is very important in a healthy diet. This recipe is a great source of fiber as well. Cayenne pepper gives the recipe a little kick but if you like something even spicier you can add a minced jalapeno pepper into the mix. If you are looking for a great party snack, this could be the recipe for you. It goes great on chips, tacos, fish, and many other things. Enjoy.

    fantastic play of colours and i really like the addition of coriander. sure gives it a lovely flavour!! i find adding fresh basil to fruit amazing as well.

  2. tye says:

    Looks yummy. It’s so beautiful. Festive colors.
    Dumb question: do you eat it as a salad or do you use it for a topping on some meat or something?

  3. Katherine says:

    I found your blog through Great Chefs Community and it looks great. This looks and sounds wonderful, so colorful. I love to find different ingredients for making salsa. I hope I get to give it a try this weekend!

  4. grace says:

    i don’t need any chips, tacos, or fish–i’d eat it straight out of the bowl (using my hands, if necessary). it’s pretty, healthy, and bound to be absolutely delicious–a triple threat!

  5. Bobby says:

    diva – fresh basil? Interesting, I will give that a try!

    tye – You could eat it as a salad if you wanted, but it would mainly be used as a dipping for chips or go to on tacos of fish.

    Vani – thanks for the compliments!

    Katherine – Yes, give it a try. It’s great. I hope you enjoy it and if you do decide to try it let me know how it turns out.

    grace – haha, with your hands… I got a good laugh :). I always enjoy your comments!

    Kevin – Salsas are amazing. I think I’m going to try mango next. Pineapple is amazing… I love the flavor! Let me know how it turns out if you try it.

  7. I usually make a pineapple salsa to serve with Jamaican Jerk Chicken. =)

    As for mango salsas: my mother makes a simply kind — with cilantro, lime juice and red onions — and actually does just eat it straight like that with a spoon!

    When I used to work in a restaurant, we’ve made mango salsa with mint and basil as the herbal components.

    _ts of [eatingclub] vancouver – pineapple salsa with jerk chicken sounds great! The mango salsa sounds interested, I am going to make it sometime.

  9. Graeme says:

    We don’t celebrate simple things like Salsa often enough, do we? They’re often the bits of a meal we remember most fondly.

    Great post.

    Made this tonight to enjoy this weekend on a retreat with friends. Can’t wait to eat it! THis was great recipe for me, as I could find all of the ingredients here in Honduras. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Mrugesh says:

    Hmmm, I have no clue whether cayenne pepper is available here. Any ideas for a substitute?

  12. jonty in tenerife says:

    Never been a great fan of cilantro but I keep trying. Definitely will experiment with basil and with mint. I think it a bit chunky for dipping so will try a much finer dice and also puree to make a dipping sauce – I love experimenting with food colours / flavours / textures.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
