Fresh and Easy Pineapple Salsa

This month for supper club, I was in charge of the appetizer. And since I love to make fresh homemade salsa each summer, this pineapple version seemed like the perfect easy recipe to make.

Of course, you don’t need to host a luau to make this salsa. It’s great for dipping with tortilla chips.

It also pairs perfectly with all of your grilled summertime favorites like chicken, fish, or pork. (Oh…and it tastes great with tacos, and shredded chalupa, too!)

The sweet and spicy flavors combined taste ah-mazing. Be warned. Once you start to eat this salsa, you might not be able to stop!

Ingredients For Fresh and Easy Pineapple Salsa
  • 1 cup fresh diced pineapple
  • 1 cup yellow and orange diced bell peppers (or bell peppers of choice)
  • 1 cup diced Roma tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon diced jalapeno (optional)

How To Make Fresh and Easy Pineapple Salsa

(A quick note before we begin. I think fresh pineapple tastes best for this recipe, but if you’d like to save some time, canned pineapple will work too.)

To make fresh salsa, cut the top and the bottom off your pineapple. Then cut the pineapple into two halves and carefully remove the core.

Once the core is removed, cut the pineapple into quarters. Dice one cup of pineapple for the salsa recipe.

Then place the rest in an airtight food storage container and keep it in the fridge to eat later (or use it to make a second batch of salsa).

Next, in a small serving bowl, mix together the diced pineapple, one cup of diced Roma tomatoes, one cup of diced bell peppers, 1/4 cup of minced red onions, 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro, and four tablespoons of lime juice.

If you like your salsa with a bit more heat, you can also add a bit of diced jalapeno. I’m not a huge spicy food fan, so I opted to leave them out.

Once all of the ingredients have been added to the bowl, mix well and season your fresh pineapple salsa with salt, and pepper.

You can enjoy it right away, or place it in the fridge for 1-2 hours to flavor and chill before diving in.

Can You Make The Salsa Ahead Of Time?

I think the pineapple salsa is best when it’s served fresh the same day, but you can make it in advance and keep it in the fridge overnight.

To save time, you can also dice and chop all of the ingredients a day ahead of time.

Store the pineapple and the diced vegetables in separate food storage containers and then mix the salsa together just before you serve it.

Additions To the Salsa

Mix it up and try adding these other fresh ingredients to your pineapple salsa.
