Pineapple Salsa

IMG_5989.JPGThis post is a request from mi amiga Allison.  She was over at the house a week or so ago.  I was whipping up some snacks for us to eat, this being one of them.  She asked me to do a post on this, because she liked it so much. 

It is a fresh, tasty appetizer you could bring to a party. You could also serve as a relish for your tacos.  Or, even bigger idea, host a Cinco de Mayo fiesta and serve it there!

IMG_5966.JPGHere’s what you need, including another lime and fresh cilantro, salt and pepper.

IMG_5968.JPGStart with a ripe tomatillo.  It should be soft, not hard.  Remember to remove the papery skin off before washing it.  Mince this and add to a bowl.  It should be about 1/2 cup.IMG_5969.JPGThen finely chop your pepper and purple onion.  Add 1/2 cup of each to the bowl.IMG_5971.JPGIMG_5972.JPGNext, remove outer covering of pineapple.  Cut fruit off of core.  Finely chop 1 1/2 cups of the pineapple.  Add to the bowl.IMG_5973.JPGCut the jalapeño in half.  Remove seeds and veins.  Finely chop and add to the bowl.IMG_5975.JPGChop about 1/4 cup of cilantro (depending on your taste) and add to bowl.  Squeeze two limes and add 1 tsp. salt and freshly ground pepper.  You can add more/less salt, depending on how salty your chips are.  IMG_5983.JPGIMG_5981.JPGStir well.  Let sit for at least 15 minutes.  Stir again before serving.  Serve with your favorite chips.  IMG_5984.JPGIMG_5991.JPGRecipe:

1 tomatillo, husk removed, finely chopped

1/2 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped

1/2 cup purple onion, finely chopped

1 jalapeno, deseeded and deveined, finely chopped

1 1/2 cups finely chopped fresh pineapple

1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped

juice of 2 limes

1 tsp. salt (or salt to taste)

freshly ground pepper

Put all ingredients in a bowl and stir well.  Let sit for at least 15 minutes to marry the flavors.  Stir again before serving with your favorite chips.IMG_5990.JPGIMG_5993.JPG
