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.

    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!
