Looking for a delicious and easy recipe for pineapple salsa? This dish is perfect for any party or potluck, and is sure to be a hit with your guests!
The sweet and tangy flavors of the pineapple combine perfectly with the freshness of the cilantro and the heat of the jalapeno, creating a truly unique and irresistible flavor.
Yield about 8 servings
Cook time is about 20 minutes
½ Pineapple, peeled and in ½” slices
½ Red Pepper, small diced
½ Green Pepper, small diced
½ Red Onion, small diced
1 Jalapeno, seeded and chopped fine
1 Tbs Lime Juice
1 Tbs Fresh Cilantro, finely chopped
1 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tbs Canna Olive Oil
¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper, adjust to your taste
½ tsp Salt and Black Pepper
1 tsp Sugar
First Preheat your grill to medium and oil the grates to help prevent the pineapple from sticking. Grill the pineapples until you have some nice browning, maybe 5-10 minutes, make sure to grill both sides.
What we are doing here is caramelizing the natural sugar in the pineapple to give it a nice smokey and sweet caramel flavor.
Once that is grilled, let it cool and chop it finely and add to the diced peppers(red, green, and jalapeno) and onions. In a separate bowl mix the apple cider vinegar, canna oil, cayenne, sugar, salt and pepper, and lime juice and whisk well.
Then pour the mixture over the pineapple, peppers, and onions and lightly toss, now add the cilantro and toss a little more. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed and cover and refrigerate.
Refrigerate for at least an hour, I like to for 24 hours to really release the flavors and make sure to toss before serving. Now it's time to dig in and enjoy, it's great with tortilla chips or even on some fish tacos!
