My family members needed something to nibble on with our tropical cocktails! I love the combination of flavors in this salsa, which looks gorgeous to boot. I have made it with only pineapple when I couldn’t find a mango, but the mango adds color as well as taste.
2 cups fresh, chopped pineapple
1 fresh mango, chopped into small pieces (you may omit the mango and use 3 cups of pineapple if you prefer)
1 handful cilantro, chopped as finely as you like (I tend to do it roughly)
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 Serrano pepper (or the pepper of your choice), seeded and finely chopped
the juice of 1 lime (or 2 tablespoons key lime juice)
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher or sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Chill for at least 1/2 hour before serving to let the flavors blend. Serve with tortilla chips. (Homemade chips are best, but store bought are easiest!)
Makes about 3 cups of salsa.
