Pineapple Mango Salsa




Way back over a year ago, I posted a recipe for Pineapple Mango Salsa Slaw, which is a sort of combination of this tropical salsa and cole slaw. It’s delicious. If you haven’t tried it and you like both of those things, give it a whirl.

Last night, I was headed to a cookout and wanted to take an easy side dish so I thought I’d make some salsa. When I saw the pineapples, mangoes and jalapeños at my local Aldi, I knew what I was going to do.

A little chopping, a little stirring, a little lot of tasting and it was done. Super fast, super easy, super delicious.




You can scoop this up with plantain chips or some grain free tortilla chips such as Siete Brands or  serve it over some simple grilled fish or chicken. That’s my favorite way to enjoy this super flavorful salsa. You can even wrap it all up in an AIP friendly tortilla and you have an amazing, light and fresh dinner for these hot summer days.

Hurry, before summer is over! Grab some tropical fruit and make this refreshing salsa!

Ingredients
  • 2 medium jalapeños seeds and ribs removed and chopped very fine
  • 1/2 pineapple chopped fine
  • 1 mango peeled and chopped fine
  • 1/4 cup cilantro minced or ripped
  • 1 tsp. lime juice or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper or to taste, see notes below
  • 1 tsp. honey optional, can use additional THM approved sweetener if desired, or omit altogether
  • 1/4 cup sweet onion chopped fine
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Important Note: When handling spicy peppers, be careful to wash your hands very, very thoroughly when you're through. After chopping the jalapeños for this salsa, I washed by hands twice and even still burned my eye when I rubbed it over an hour later!
  2. Add all chopped fruit, onion and pepper to a medium sized mixing bowl and mix well.
  3. Squeeze lime over fruit.
  4. Chop cilantro and add to the bowl.
  5. Mix this all together well and taste it. Does it need some salt? Does it need a little honey? Does it need a little black pepper? Add these to your liking.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and keep at room temperature if serving within an hour. If serving later than an hour after prep, refrigerate. This salsa gets better and better so if you can make it a little ahead of when you need it, that is ideal. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. But there won't be any leftovers.
