Spring Break: Tropical Fruit Salsa



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.

    The only disadvantage is that the herbs can get a bit stuck in the scissors…….
