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.

    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

    This looks delicious! I’ve not had salsa with pineapple but I need to get on that! My daughter has made it with mango and that’s a favorite of ours! Love it, Kathy!!

    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!
