Pineapple Salsa

on

Here is a great recipe that can be put atop pork, chicken, salmon or just eaten alone with some nacho chips. It is SO refreshing and great for summer... I will BBQ some chicken up and put this easy salsa on top and it has been a crowd favorite! Pita chips or even on some melted brie would be delicious.

Ingredients:
2  plum tomatoes

1/2  small red onion

1  4-in. (10-cm)  piece seedless cucumber

1/2  cup (125 mL) lightly packed cilantro leaves, chopped

1  jalapeño pepper

1  medium pineapple

1  lime

1/2  tsp (2 mL) salt

Lime Tortilla Chips (optional)


Directions:
1.  Hull and remove seeds from tomatoes. Dice tomatoes, onion and cucumber and combine with cilantro in mixing bowl. Cut jalapeño in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Finely chop jalapeno; add to bowl.

2.  Slice top and bottom off of pineapple, creating a flat base. Stand pineapple upright and cut peel off by angling knife just under skin and carving the skin off in a downwards motion. Here is an AWESOME pineapple corer as well: http://www.pamperedchef.biz/ads?page=products-detail&categoryId=90&productId=26592&itemId=2416

Set aside half of the pineapple for another use. Dice pineapple flesh. Juice lime to measure about 2 tbsp (30 mL) juice. Add pineapple, lime juice and salt to batter bowl. Mix well. Serve with Lime Tortilla Chips, if desired.
