Have you ever wondered how to make pineapple salsa? Not only is it easy to make, but it is also colorful and delicious!

This gluten free pineapple salsa is a delicious accompaniment to chicken, fish or tortilla chips! It can be made with fresh or canned pineapple. Red onions and green herbs add flavor as well as color to the finished salsa.

The salsa is quick to prepare. After combining all the ingredients, simply chill for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to have time to blend.

What to Serve with the Salsa

This fruity salsa with a slightly spicy taste makes a great addition to grilled or sautéed chicken breasts. Pictured below is the pineapple salsa served with Caribbean Jerk Sauteed Chicken breasts. You can find the recipe for the chicken breasts here: Caribbean Jerk Sautéed Chicken Breasts

It would be very tasty served with a basket of tortilla chips.

Blue Corn Chips are another option! They look so pretty with the salsa!

  • Diced pineapple can be used in place of the crushed pineapple. If using diced or chunks of fresh pineapple, use a food processor or blender to help chop or mince the pieces of pineapple.
  • add a dash of salt if you think it needs it. I hardly ever add salt to my recipes.
