This refreshing and easy pineapple salsa recipe is vibrant, flavorful, healthy, and delicious! Make it in just 15 minutes and serve it with crispy tortilla chips alongside creamy guacamole, pico de gallo, lime crema, and tacos or fajitas for an epic Mexican spread!
3cupsfresh pineapplediced, about half a large pineapple
1red bell pepperdiced
½cupred oniondiced, about half an onion
1jalapeñoseeds and ribs removed then finely chopped
Peel and dice the pineapple. You can either remove the core, or choose to keep it. When the pineapple is really ripe, and you're dicing the pineapple small, the core becomes quite tender to eat and doesn't need to be removed.
Dice the vegetables small (bell pepper, red onion, jalapeño) and cilantro. Combine everything in a large bowl, season with salt, and squeeze fresh lime juice.
Give everything a very good toss, then have a taste, and adjust seasonings to your preference.
Serve in a hollowed out pineapple for a fun-looking appetizer!
Try to dice the pineapple and vegetables pretty finely (but not too small). Naturally the pineapple pieces will be a little bigger compared to the bell pepper and onion, but that's totally fine. You just need a small dice to be able to enjoy the salsa with tortilla chips.
If you don't have time to dice a pineapple, buy pre-sliced fresh pineapple and that will save you a lot of time.
To make this salsa even more fun, try adding diced fresh mango, peach, or sweet corn!
There is no right or wrong when it comes to what ingredients to add to this salsa, want to add a tomato? Go for it! A cucumber? Sure why not! Have fun with it!
Serve chilled or at room temperature.
Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
