I especially love fruity salsa. There’s something about the sweet and savory element that I can’t get enough of.

I used DOLE Frozen Pineapple Chunks, yellow bell peppers, Roma tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper. A healthy, clean, and simple ingredient list that packs big time flavor and texture.

Add a serrano pepper if you want to crank up the heat. My family prefers yellow peppers, but you can use any color.

The salsa is awesome with tortilla chips of course.

But it’s also great on fish tacos, on nachos, as a chicken marinade or sauce after the chicken is done, on top of taco cups, with chicken burrito bowls, and will complement most any Mexican recipe.

Pineapple Salsa

I adore salsa of any kind and can make a meal out of it and I especially love fruity salsa. There’s something about the sweet and savory element that I can’t get enough of. This easy salsa is ready in 5 minutes and I prefer homemade salsa because I control the ingredients. Pineapple Chunks, yellow bell peppers, Roma tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper. A healthy, clean, and simple ingredient list that packs big time flavor and texture. The salsa is awesome with tortilla chips and will complement most any Mexican recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups DOLE Frozen Pineapple Chunks, thawed, drained, and diced small
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups bell pepper, seeded and diced small (from about 1 small bell pepper; I used yellow, use your favorite color)
  • 1 medium Roma tomato, diced small
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, peeled and diced small
  • about 2 tablespoons lime juice, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • pinch granulated sugar, optional and to taste

Directions:

  1. To a large bowl, add all ingredients, stir to combine, taste, and check for flavor balance. Make any necessary tweaks based on personal preference, i.e. more salt, pinch of sugar, etc. Serve immediately or cover, refrigerate, and serve chilled. Salsa will keep airtight for up to 5 days in the fridge, noting that it will become more watery as time passes as the produce releases its natural juices. I prefer it about 4 to 12 hours later, after the flavors have married and it’s been chilled.

  1. I love a fruit salsa and pineapple sounds amazing! I have some tomatoes and bell peppers from my Dad’s garden and there are jalapeños at work from someone else. A little pineapple and onion will put me in business. Jon would love it if I made fish tacos this weekend!

    • Wow the fact that you can make this given homegrown produce for the most part is pretty impressive! Fish tacos sound great for a holiday weekend!

    • I made this around noon so it could chill until dinner…and ended up needing to chop up more of everything because my taste testing went out of control.☺ Perfectly acceptable, right?! So I ate it twice today–and we loved it on the fish tacos. This is some of the best salsa I’ve ever had!

      • That’s awesome praise coming from you Paula because I know you’ve made tons of my salsas and probably lots more over those too! So to say it’s some of the best ever – what a compliment, thank you!

        Love that you were taste testing quite a bit :)

  2. I quite literally ate a plate of black bean and corn salsa today for lunch. I had to eat again an hour later, but that was lunch. This wasn’t the first time, either. :D

  3. I LOVE fruit salsa- I plan on making it this weekend!

  4. hey girl this looks really good!

  5. i love the combination of color. looks very eye-catching. my kids love pineapple so much then this evening i have new dish for them. thanks for sharing this, Averie. i’m forwarding more posts from you.

  6. This looks amazing!! Do you think it could be made in large batches and canned?? That way it could be ready to pop in ice box and opened when company popped in??

  7. I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious!
