Pineapple salsa

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.Pineapple salsa is salty, sweet, spicy, and savory.

There are all kinds of ways to serve this pineapple salsa:

How long does homemade salsa last?

This salsa will be the best if eaten within 3-5 days.

How do I control the heat of this salsa?

To take the heat down a notch, make sure to remove the seeds of the jalapeño pepper.

How do I get more juice from a lime?

To maximize the amount of lime juice, I like to microwave the lime for 30 seconds, then roll it around on the counter. Then juice the lime with a juicer or simple by hand.
