Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple salsa is a fun, colorful way to add variety to a chips-and-salsa snack or to a fish-taco meal.  In this recipe, pineapple is chopped and mixed with red peppers, onion, cilantro and lime for a fresh take on traditional salsa. Feel free to substitute green peppers for red, or use mint in place of cilantro to suit your taste and creativity. This salsa is a great source of Vitamin C, fiber and beneficial phytochemicals and antioxidants because of the variety of colorful fruits and vegetables.

Ingredients:

2 cups diced fresh pineapple
1 cup diced red pepper
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
3 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeno pepper stemmed and seeded
1 clove garlic minced
Juice of 1 large lime
Salt to taste

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine pineapple, red pepper, cilantro, red onion, jalapeno, garlic, and lime juice.
  2. Stir until well combined.
  3. Season with salt, to taste. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
