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’ve always been a chips and salsa lover. I love traditional, tomato based salsa but I also love sweeter salsas! The combination of savory and sweet will forever win with my taste buds. Lately I’ve been taking a stab at making my own homemade salsas instead of picking them up at the store and I have to say… they are 100% worth the effort to make them fresh! The flavors of a fresh salsa vs. store-bought are soooo much better. Trust me!

While this salsa does take a fair amount of chopping, it’s super simple to make! 

Ingredients You Need:

  • tomatoes
  • pineapple
  • red onion
  • cilantro
  • fresh lime juice
  • ground coriander
  • salt and pepper
  • jalapeno – optional but recommended to add a little heat!

After all of your fruit and vegetables are chopped, you’ll add them to a large bowl along with the lime juice, coriander, salt and pepper. I recommend that you let the mixture sit for at least 30 minutes before serving… let all of those flavors marinate together for ultimate tastiness!

How to Enjoy Pineapple Salsa

  • Keep it simple and eat it with tortilla chips.

  • Enjoy with beans and rice for a simple, delicious dinner.

    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!
