This sweet and fresh pineapple salsa is so easy to make! Pair it with tortilla chips for a flavorful appetizer or use as a topping for tacos, grilled chicken or fish.
I’m a sucker for salsa. I love pretty much all salsa, but really love unique salsas that mix in fruit! Mango, peach, watermelon, pineapple… the options are endless. I decided to go with pineapple for this salsa, but let me know if you’re craving a different fruit and I’ll have to experiment!
Pineapple is loaded with nutrients and isn’t high in calories, so it’s what we would call a “nutrient-dense” food. It provides over 130% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C, which is great for boosting your immune system. Pineapple also contains a mixture of digestive enzymes (called bromelain) that help break down proteins. Some people (those with digestive issues or those looking for muscle recovery) take bromelain supplements to help with digestion, inflammation and recovery time after exercise, but you can get the same benefit just by eating pineapple. It really is a powerhouse fruit!

How to Make Pineapple Salsa
This recipe pretty much just involves a lot of chopping! Once everything is diced, simply add pineapple, onion, bell pepper, jalapeño pepper, garlic, and cilantro in a small bowl and toss with lime juice. Let all of the flavors marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours before serving. As I mention before this salsa is great served with tortilla chips, tacos, burritos, nachos or grilled protein.
