Salsa isn’t just for vegetables. Try this easy, fresh pineapple salsa! Served right inside of the pineapple, it makes for a great centerpiece as well.

Welcome to day two of #SpringSweetsWeek . Since today is also National Chip and Dip Day, I decided to share my fresh pineapple salsa recipe today. Which is also perfect for continuing to watch all the NCAA basketball games this weekend.

One of my two brackets imploded but I’m stilling hanging onto hope for the one! Of course it’s also the one where the only prize is gloating. My bracket entered into the pool one is busted. Figures.

Fresh Pineapple Salsa Ingredients

I love making homemade salsa and fruit salsas are not new to me. I’ve made a blend of fruits, strawberry, avocado mango, and peach before. So when I was contemplating what to do with the pineapple I received from Melissa’s Produce it seemed like it was time to add a pineapple salsa to my repertoire. 

The best part about making salsa from  a fresh pineapple? You can serve the salsa in the pineapple carcass! All you have to do is slice off one side, then carefully cut the flesh out while leaving the outside intact. Once you’ve mixed up the rest of the pineapple ingredients, transfer them back into the shell to serve.

Can you use canned pineapple?

Of course you can (snigger at the pun), but doesn’t fresh taste so much better? Especially in something like this where the flavor is so prevalent. But you do you ;-).

Fresh Pineapple Salsa #SpringSweetsWeek

This recipe was made with Melissa’s Produce pineapple and key limes. In the recipe I just state “lime” just in case you cannot locate any. But if you can, I also made sure to give a measurement as key limes are smaller and thus produce less juice.
