Summer is right around the corner and you know what that means… Summer parties! If I’m not hosting the party I always like to bring something with me and more often than not I am crunched for time. Easy dishes that have a big impact are what I often look for. Chopped tomatoes, red onion, hot peppers, pineapple and lime give this salsa the perfect balance and twist of spicy and sweet. For a tropical kick, serve this freshly made Virgin Gorda Pineapple Salsa in a pineapple bowl and pair it with a tropical drink!
½ red onion
1 jalapeno pepper (stems, ribs, seeds removed)
Juice of one lime
½ cup chopped cilantro
½ – 1 cup diced fresh pineapple
- To make the pineapple bowl, cut the pineapple in half horizontally, while the pineapple is standing upright. With a spoon or knife, scoop out the pineapple flesh. Set aside and use later for the salsa.
- Dice the tomatoes until they are chopped evenly and place into a medium sized bowl. Prepare the jalapeno pepper, and very finely dice. Dice the fresh pineapple and add to the bowl.
- Combine all of the ingredients into the same bowl and taste. Carefully pour salsa into the pineapple bowl and serve with corn chips.
