With summer creeping upon us, I felt compelled to update one of my first posts as a food blogger and one of my favourite snacks, Pineapple Salsa!! A fantastic summer snack that’s worth repeating with a couple photos cleaned up. The original post was done for Cinco Da Mayo, however this fantastic recipe goes far beyond into the warm summer months with its perfect balance of sweet and spicy. Fresh and vibrant with fresh pineapple and lots of cilantro makes it a recipe I’ve made over and over. It’s always a hit, whether it be at work, at home or a social gathering. Serve with plenty of lime tortilla chips and watch it disappear. Enjoy!
Get the recipe ⬇️
- 1 medium pineapple
- 2 tomatoes
- 1/2 cup red onion
- 1/2 english cucumber
- 2 jalapeño pepper
- 1 cup cilantro leaves
- 2 limes
- 3/4 tsp salt
- as needed tortilla chips preferably lime seasoned
- Peel and core pineapple. Chop pineapple along with the tomatoes, red onion, and cucumber into 1/4 inch dice. Set aside together in a large bowl.
- Cut jalapeño peppers in half lengthwise and scrape out seeds, finely chop into 1/8 inch dice. Add to bowl. Coarsely chop cilantro and add to bowl.
- Cut limes in half and squeeze juice over mixture. Sprinkle with salt and stir to combine. Serve immediately with lime tortilla chips.
Resting the salsa for an hour will allow the lime juice to cut the bite in the jalapeño and red onion. It is strongly recommended to cut all ingredients by hand to retain the fresh appearance and prevent over processing the ingredients.
