This easy to make salsa is full of bright flavors and is perfect for serving with chips or meats and fish. It’s made with only 6 ingredients in less than 15 minutes and has natural sweetness from fresh pineapple with a kick of spiciness from jalapenos. I’m giving you fair warning, one bite of this pineapple salsa and you’ll be absolutely addicted!
If you are a fan of chips and salsa, then this recipe is for you. It’s got my favorite flavor profile of sweet and salty, then, when you add in a little heat from the peppers, it takes this recipe to a whole new level. I’m not going to drone on an on about this dish but I am going to give you some clear instructions – go to the store, buy all the ingredients and make this stuff now! (wink)
All you need is 6 simple ingredients – fresh pineapple, tomatoes, an onion, a jalapeno pepper, cilantro and a lime. That’s it. Now, it’s time to do a little chopping. The key here is to make your knife cuts uniform. It looks better in your serving bowl and more importantly, when you’re scooping in with a chip, you’ll be able to get a little bite of everything!
After chopping your ingredients, just dump them all in a bowl, squeeze on the lime, give a little sprinkle of salt and you are done. Your masterpiece is ready to serve. Of course, serving it with some crunchy chips is the #1 way to go at it but this salsa is outrageously good on grilled meats and fish. I think it’d be awesome on fish tacos or as a topping for cheese quesadillas. This is one of those recipes that will have your head spinning with all the different ways to eat it! For me, all I need is a big bag of chips, something festive to drink and it’s a party.
