I’m kind of, just a little bit, okay completely entirely obsessed with this recipe. Not only is it my go-to salsa recipe, but all it really takes to get me salivating is a good 10 seconds staring at these pictures.

I’m just putting this out there, but these pictures just may be my favorite ones yet! I know I basically say that every week (minus the weeks when I’m totally off and want to chuck my camera out the window…), but I really mean it this time.

However, it’s not just the beauty of the image, but the people behind it that matter most.

As most of you know, this past year has meant some serious growing pains and amazing accomplishments for The Healthy Maven. It’s been hectic, and overwhelming and completely exhilarating watching my baby grow larger than me and honestly, a real privilege to be a part of the process.

It’s meant accepting that I cannot do it all, even if I wanted. It’s meant realizing that I’m doing a disservice to myself and to all of you by continuing to try to control every aspect of THM. It’s meant, opening up to the idea of letting others in.

Now, for a complete and total control-freak this is no easy task. But crazier things have happened and in the process I have welcomed the incomparable Jess to Team Maven, and now, my dear friend and insanely talented videographer Sahar.

This will be your new favorite salsa recipe!Besides getting to share this delicious Pineapple Salsa with you, my job has become infinitely more fun since Sahar joined the team.

Whether we’re jamming out to Bieber or Drake while shooting, obsessing over the placement of a piece of cilantro or sharing our hearts over a bottle of green juice, Sahar is one of those people who I feel blessed to have in my life.

Our friendship was immediate. It took about as long as it did for me to put together this salsa. Which FYI, is about 5 minutes. She’s just one of those people who you meet and never let go.

Fortunately, I now get to see her even more often and create some photo and video magic in the kitchen. So today’s post is dedicated to my girl Sahar, who’s sweet, spicy and will make you want to come back for seconds!

    Amazing your team is growing! It has been very cool to see your blog grow from essentially the beginning! I joined a new gym and group personal training in January 2015 and the people that has introduced me to since – and the crazy challenges it has led me to (like running a marathon!) stands out most to me. I feel so lucky to have them in my life!

    Please consider this my official submission to join Team Maven in the role of taste tester. I bring a valuable skill set to the proverbial table in that I have an extra long tongue which boasts three extra taste buds for optimal flavor and wine pairings. I am also completely honest drunk and sober, am impressive characteristic to be sure. I am a team player and even occasionally share my meals or at least small bites of them when asked nicely. I look forward to hearing from you regarding my proposal.

    I think that first developing the trust in other people before thinking about who is going to do what for your blog is important. You need to make the friend before the coworker. That way, when business does come to play, then you will feel a lot more secure in the person that you’re handing this job too. Just a suggestion since I’m in no way qualified to give advice for someone who is making revenue off of a blog, but I’ve learned this through trusting other people, especially through work and friendships. Anyways, I love the look of this salsa! The tropical flavors of the pineapple and the juices from the tomatoes and the fruits will blend so beautifully!
