Attention pineapple lovers: You’ll flip for this bright, refreshing, and sweet spin on traditional salsa. My family enjoys it with whole grain crackers, baked pita chips, or scoop-able sturdy veggies like sliced cucumbers and bell peppers. And while it’s great as a side salsa, we also like to use it as a topper on grilled chicken or mild white fish for some colorful pizzaz. Pro tip: Prepare it right before serving so the avocado maintains its gorgeous green hue and the pineapple pieces stay perky and plump.  And, if you’d like to mix things up, try swapping in diced mango for the pineapple; it creates an entirely different flavor profile and provides a beautiful color contrast.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes about 2 ½ Cups
  • • 1 cup fresh pineapple, diced (can swap diced mango)
  • • 1 cup avocado, diced (from 1 large avocado)
  • • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • • 1 to 2 tablespoons minced jalapeno (if you’re heat sensitive, remove seeds and ribs)
  • • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (~1 ½ limes)
  • • ½ teaspoon salt, or more to taste
  • • ½ cup roughly chopped cilantro

Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl and gently stir to combine. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with whole grain crackers, chips, or scoop-able veggies like thick cucumber and bell pepper slices.
