Salsa is the #1 condiment in the United States. Imagine that, it beat out ketchup! I can see it. Can’t you? We use salsa 4 times more than ketchup at our house. Do you use salsa at your house? Salsa comes in a variety of flavors and textures. You can find it chunky and restaurant style (pureed). There’s tomato salsa, tomatillo salsa, chunky black bean and corn salsa, etc. These are all great but sometimes you want something a little different.
Fruit salsa is a refreshing change of pace from the ordinary. This Pineapple Salsa is sweet and spicy. It combines pineapple and jalapenos for a great tropical flavor. The bright, sweet taste of the pineapple compliments the heat in the jalapeno. If you want a milder salsa, remove the seeds and inner membranes of the jalapenos or use a milder chile like an anaheim or poblano pepper. This salsa is spectacular on fish tacos. It brings out the flavors of the fish and gives the taco so much flavor. Pineapple Salsa is a light and refreshing salsa that goes great with chips, on sandwiches, or served with pork or chicken. The possibilities are endless.
