This Fresh and Easy Pineapple Salsa recipe only requires 6 ingredients and 15 minutes to make. It’s the perfect appetizer for your next party and would also go great on some tacos for a little crunch.
Is there anything better than having friends over for a beer on the porch after being stuck inside all winter?
Yeahhh….I don’t think so.
Believe me. I know, because that’s what I did this weekend.
The fiancé is a bit of a budding beer connoisseur and has been brewing his own beer for over a year now. The brewing process takes around 5 hours or so and he usually brews it on our front porch where he’s got a little more space (hope that’s not some kind of fire code violation). The whole thing is basically a great excuse to have friends over for a little brewing party where we eat, drink and have fun.
Naturally, with me being into the whole cooking thing and whatnot, I made this really delicious Fresh & Easy Pineapple Salsa recipe that took me only 15 minutes to throw together. I actually already had most of the ingredients I needed to make this in my kitchen, which is clutch. Except for the pineapple, didn’t have that one. Okay, so five out of six isn’t too bad.
My friends loved it. It was a total hit and was completely gone by the time everyone left, which is truly one of the best compliments I could get.
I also added one little secret ingredient that I had never used before that turned out great.
Yup. It exists. I picked it up on a random shopping trip a few weeks ago (along with Sriracha powder, which also exists!) out of pure intrigue. I intentionally didn’t want to use fresh jalapeños in the salsa recipe because I wasn’t sure if everyone was a fan of the spice. The jalapeño powder allowed me to add a bit at a time so I could get the spice level right where I wanted it.
In addition to eating this salsa with chips, it would also go really well on top of these dishes:
- 30 Minute Mexican Lime Chicken Fajitas + Easy Guacamole
- Mexican Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas Tacos
- Fish Tacos with Chipotle Lime Crema
Or you can just eat it by the spoonful. That’s totally fine.
- 2 large beefsteak tomatoes (about 3 to 4 roma tomatoes)
- 1/2 large red onion
- 1 medium green bell pepper
- 1/4 large pineapple, (about 2 1/2 cups, diced)
- 1/2 cup packed cilantro leaves
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon jalapeño powder, optional
Dice tomatoes, red onion, green bell pepper, pineapple, and cilantro leaves. Transfer to large bowl.
Add in lime juice, sea salt and jalapeño powder.
Combine, taste and add more salt if necessary.
