This Pineapple Salsa is Incredibly Delicious (and Easy!)

This pineapple salsa recipe is a delicious combination of sweet and spicy! It goes well with any type of meat or seafood – or eat just with tortilla chips.

Incredibly Delicious Pineapple Salsa

When I was younger, you could never have gotten me to try pineapple salsa. All food used to have “rules,” thanks to my great-grandfather who was a picky eater.

Here are examples of food rules: 1) pizza and pasta can never be eaten cold; 2) foods mustn’t touch each other on your plate; 3) fruit is sweet and doesn’t “go” with meat or chips.

That’s only three of the many rules handed down to me by family members.

I’ve changed as an adult though. While I still have some food rules (I don’t like foods touching), I’ve been more willing to try things outside of my comfort zone. Like salsa made with fruit.

Fresh Fruit Salsa

This pineapple salsa breaks all the rules but is truly delicious! It’s perfect on fish or meat . . . or with chips.

AND you’ve got a little kick with the jalapeño (leave it out if you don’t like spicy). This salsa is the ULTIMATE in deliciousness, especially for summer.

Initially what caught my attention was the photos, they're beautiful. They pulled me in and I am so glad they did. I don't have any food rules, with the exception of the most important food rule of all. THE FOOD MUST BE DELICIOUS! That's all I ask, is that so hard? And this pineapple salsa looks like it may do the job just fine. I am definitely going to try this one for sure. Thank you, Amy!
