This pineapple salsa is perfect over grilled fish, chicken or as a dip with tortilla chip!

If you haven’t ever had a fruit salsa, you are in for a treat!  It is so fresh tasting and delicious.

When I was making this salsa, the kids kept asking, “Where are the tomatoes?”  Most salsas do have tomatoes, but not this one!  This salsa only has 5 ingredients – but no tomatoes!

One of my favorite ways to eat this salsa is with grilled fish or chicken, but we’ve also served it with taco. Sometimes I eat it by the spoonful!

Go grab yourself a fresh pineapple and throw together this quick and delicious pineapple salsa.

      You can control the spiciness by adding as much jalapeno as you desire. Some people like it extra spicy!

    I had only traditional tomato salsa in mind. This sounds interesting. Pineapple salsa can go well with Indian roti and steamed rice for our traditional sadya

    I love fruit salsa! The eye popping color and the swirling taste. Sometimes I make my own, sometimes we buy from the Amish who whip is up pretty cheaply out in the country, but I’m trying this!!

    I love pineapple salsa and will put it on everything. Trying to recipe next time I make it. BTW, did you change the look of your site? The header script looks different too. Well, if you did change it, then I like it a lot!

    Pineapples are on sale at our local grocery store right now…and I’m thinking a big batch of this salsa might need to happen. I’ve always been partial to ‘traditional’ salsa, but I do love pineapples! Oh, I wonder if we could grill that pineapple and then add it to this salsa? Yum!
