This salsa is so easy to make and versatile too. Add what you like, leave out what you don't like. It should taste as fresh as summer! Great with fish, chicken, pork, chips, or just with a spoon! This is a do ahead recipe for sure. It taste better the next day. Play with this salsa, I have added grapes, apples, dried cranberries, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, watermelon; just balance sweet with acid of lime or lemon. Have fun with it!

  • Cook the pineapple, red bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper on the preheated grill, turning frequently, until the pineapple has mild grill marks and the peppers are browned on all sides, about 3 minutes for pineapple and 5 to 7 minutes for peppers. Carefully remove from grill and place peppers in paper bag to cool.

  • After peppers are cool, rub skins off gently with paper towels, cut in half, and remove and discard seeds. Cut the cooled pineapple and peppers into a small dice and place into a bowl. Add the mango, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and lime zest; stir to combine. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 8 hours to 1 day before serving.

Was looking forward to trying this with red snapper I was preparing for dinner. Made as directed and found it to be just okay. Salt & pepper improved somewhat but none of my family would do more than try a couple of bites. Will not make again. Read More

I made this salsa to go along side "Marinated Pork Tenderloin" also from this site. I cut the recipe in half and from there the only change I made was to add the zest of 1/2 lime and the juice from the whole lime - I also added salt. The end result was delicious and went with the pork very well. Read More

great with Jerk Chicken. Also - recommend using a little apple-wood smoke when grilling the pinapple and peppers - added a nice flavor. Read More

I added a lot more pineapple and only used half the mango. I enjoyed the fresh citrus taste but could only eat so much of it. Read More

Served this salsa over spicy grilled shrimp and wild rice - it was delicious. The flavors were nicely balanced - sweet with a bit of a kick to it. I made it about an hour before serving next time I will be sure to prepare in advance to let all the flavors come together more. Read More
