Pineapple Salsa

 Late Tuesday night we finally arrived home after spending 10-days in Southern California finishing off our family vacation cruising up the West Coast disembarking in Vancouver B.C.  This was my third cruise and unfortunately the weather was unkind while we were at sea.  For 3 nights straight we swayed back and forth while walking down hallways, sleeping, and eating.  Even though I’ve been home for a few days, my body is still swaying even if I’m sitting absolutely still.

Our vacation was a blast.  Beaches, Disneyland, more beaches, and just being together was time well spent.  However, there is nothing better than going to sleep and waking up in my own bed.  The first thing I noticed the next morning were that my tulips bloomed while we were gone and my herb container garden was thriving, which inspired me to make this salsa just so I could clip off some cilantro.

Surprisingly, I couldn’t wait to get in the kitchen and start cooking again.  Wanting to use up some leftover canned pineapple chunks we had, I decided to make pineapple salsa.


Pineapple salsa is similar to the more traditional pico de gallo salsa made with tomatoes.  In fact, this recipe is pretty much pico de gallo except it is made with pineapple.  Ideally you will want to use a juicy and ripe pineapple when making this but canned chunks work just fine.

I love to eat this salsa with corn chips but you could easily use it to top off grilled chicken or your favorite white fish.  Enjoy!

    Glad you all had a wonderful trip. I, too, have been on a rocky cruise ship before and remember how happy I was to be on dry land again. :) Welcome home!

    Looks fabulous! I had pineapple salsa at a local Mexican restaurant and was hooked. I never thought about making it at home. Gotta try this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    Can you find a recipe for Italian pistachio spread. I can order it, but I want to make it myself. Saw your strawberry pistachio tart recipe, but it’s not the same.
