Pineapple salsa has sweet, spicy, savory, and salty flavors all mixed into one magical dish. Serve it with chips or over your favorite Tex-Mex recipe.

I love fruit salsa! There’s something magical about the sweet, spicy, savory, and salty flavors all mixed together into one amazing dish. Pineapple salsa is always a favorite at our house because pineapples seem to be pretty available and sweet whenever we want them. My kids also happen to love pineapple, which means I pick one up pretty often for them to eat.
I really like using pineapple for fruit salsa because it’s so acidic naturally, kind of like a tomato, that it just transitions into salsa really well. I like to add sweet colored bell peppers for some color, crunch, and sweetness, and then a little lime juice, cilantro, and onion so that it tastes like a traditional salsa. Don’t forget the salt and pepper in this recipe. The salt really brings out the sweetness in the dish and is a must.

There are all kinds of ways to serve this pineapple salsa. We love it with chips (homemade baked tortilla chips are so good), and I love it on a chicken taco salad with grilled chicken, black beans, and avocado; it is also delicious on fish tacos, served over chicken breast with a side of rice, or on just about any other Tex-Mex creation you can think of.
