Super Easy Pineapple Salsa

Susan Feliciano


I learned to make pineapple salsa in Mazatlan, Mexico, on a cruise - we went to a salsa cooking and dancing class, what a hoot! We learned to roast our own peppers, how to mash the vegetables in a mocaljete, and other fancy techniques.
Here is a very "American" version of pineapple salsa. But this recipe takes the cake for ease of preparation, and the results are very good. Very quick to prepare for unexpected guests. Serve with tortilla chips or sliced vegetables. Also good as a topping for grilled fish or chicken.
