Pretty good! I've made this exactly a few times, but have to say a few mods. made it even better. Here are my changes: -**Use only about 1/2 to 3/4 amount of suggested beans, otherwise it gets to be rather beany tasting and overpowers other flavors. -I don't like green peppers, so I just use red and yellow. It's glorious. -Make sure to use fresh pineapple--cut pineapple up and leave in the fridge for a while before serving. This way it drains a bit and you can use the excess juice in addition to the OJ. -I also add fresh mango and a five or so baby tomatoes. -also very nice on crackersRead More
Only put beans in it if you want to completely ruin it. I am not sure why anyone would put beans in this recipe, they do not go with the other ingredients. Made it with the beans and it was not to my liking. No one would eat it. Made it again without and everyone loved it.Read More

This is the best recipe!!! It is a really great summer dish and has a nice fresh test. Make sure that you only try this recipe if you like cilantro and cumin...it really comes through. I've also found that canned pineapples will work if you are unable to get fresh. This also tastes great over greens, the possibilities are endless.
I love this - it is crunchy, sweet, spicy - like a CIRCUS IN YOUR MOUTH!! I make a double batch every time I make it. I love cilantro so I usually double the amount and kick up the cumin a bit, too. This is great as a side salad or for chip-dipping. We also roll it up in tortillas with seasoned meat. I've made it several times and have even tried with mango instead of pineapple which is also SO good!
This was fantastic! I found this recipe on my allrecipes app on my phone and had to login to review it! I did add some fresh lime juice, but kept everything else the same. I could eat this by itself, and did while my chicken was cooking. It is so light and fresh and crisp and tart and sweet! My husband tasted it and immediately scooped some in a bowl to eat with chips as an appetizer. This is definitely something to serve for Cinco de Mayo, for guests, or just as a light and satisfying complement to a meal. Honestly, if I was a vegetarian, I would probably eat this by the bowlful! But I do have to say, the lime juice is what made it perfect to me. I read the recipe four times because I thought for sure there should be lime juice.
I made this salsa for a Hawaiian themed party and it was a big hit. Lime flavored tortillas are excellent with it!
I left out the corn & black beans. Served it with Kalua Pork, and it was good. I think it would be delicious on grilled chicken or fish.
I absolutely loved it. Outstanding! I didn't change one bit and it turned out perfect. When I was buying mangos, they only had the not-so-ripe ones and it actually turned out better as the pieces weren't mushy. Enjoy!
I made this for Easter and my whole family enjoyed this! I did not use both chile peppers, but increased the cilantro. Everybody loved this!

added this as a topping/side over smoked ribs with a barbeque sauce using Capt.Morgan's Rum. Enough flavors and texture to keep you going for a month...was a rave by all that had it (nope, no leftovers at all...)
My husband and I loved this salsa. I served it on grilled jerk chicken and it was wonderful.
I had this with caribbean-marinated chicken-it was excellent! The flavors blend together extremely well and compliment each other.
I loved the flavors in this, but think lime juice would have worked better. I had already added the oj, so I just grated in some lime zest, which helped give the sharp flavor I was looking for.
Excellent. Nutritious. Easy. I served over grilled chicken that was marinated in a lemon juice mixture. Perfect together. I used only orange bell pepper because that is what I had on hand and it tasted fine but green and red will present a little better. I did not use all of the 15oz of beans because I felt the mixture would be over-powered by them and I was right. I used about 2/3 of the can and it was perfect. Anymore and it would be 'black-bean salsa' rather than pineapple salsa. Perfect for summer!
This was great over pan-fried sole. I used more than one serving topping per piece of fish but there was still plenty.
We made this to go over grilled chicken, and it was very good. I think for our own personal taste I will use less beans next time (and I do love black beans). I just liked the other flavors better and wanted more of them! Hubby even said he'd like this as a side dish. Will be making again!
This was great. I also added mango and doubled the beans and corn.
This is very similar to my tried and true corn slaw (minus the pineapple and cilantro.) I'll make it your way next time I have fresh pineapple and use it as a side dish. Sounds yummy--sweet, spicy, and crunchy. My pineapple salsa has only the fruit, cilantro, red onion, and serrano chili. I serve it over fish on a bed of wilted spinach with brown rice. Thanks for the recipe and lovely pic!
This was my first time making a salsa and it was really really good. I didn't use the orange juice, but instead added about 1 tsp of lemon juice. I will definitely make this again. My boyfriend liked it too.
Amazing served wih salmon and some white rice! I made this exactly as the recipe states and it was very good. We added a little more pineapple and it became amazing!
Made it as is. Very fast and easy to make. A lot of great healthy ingredients. My entire family loved it - husband and kids. Thanks for sharing. Made it with 'Unbelievable Chicken" from this site. (Which was moist and YUMMY.)
Used 2 cans Mexicali corn, chopped peanuts, a sprinkle of chili pepper. Even better the 2nd day!
Absolutely delicious! I omitted the black beans & onions because my kids don't care for them. I put the salsa over grilled halibut and it was amazing!
Easy and fantastic!
This was great. I didn't have corn or beans, but it still turned out well. I also added some garlic and lime juice because I like those flavors.
I made this exactly as written, and it was great served over chicken breasts grilled with cajun seasoning. I took the leftovers to work with chips, and my co-workers raved! Thanks for the great, refreshing combination of flavors.
great salsa, however I use fresh corn on the cob and grill it first, skip the oj and just use the pineapple juice from the fresh pineapple and squease either lemon or lime in it(to taste). avacado is also a great addition. goes great with fish tacos, and many other dishes.
outstanding, simple and holds for a week in the fridge! Try it with a splash or two of tapatilo!!
awesome! Great for the summer
This wasn't terrible but it wasn't great. It was a little flavorless, I had to add some cayenne. Fresh pineapple is very expensive where I live so I used canned and maybe that was part of the problem.
Pretty good, but much better the next day after sitting in fridge.
I used red lentils instead of the black beans. This is a little too sweet with the orange juice and the pineapple, so I think I will use lime juice instead of the orange juice next time. Great taste!
I thought this salsa was awesome!! I made it to put on pork carnitas on this site and fish tacos. I made it exactly to the recipe, but next time I might cut back on the black beans like someone else recommended.
I gave it three stars, only because I used the recipe as more of a guideline for my own creation. it was so good.
This makes quite a lot of salsa, which was good as we had probably 25 or so ppl here for supper. My only differences were canned corn, no chili peppers but I had some other kind of mild pepper. Ppl kept going back for more. Nothing left. Thanks for sharing!
i used this recipe as a side dish to chicken and it turned out ok. will add less cilantro next time though, as its not a fave herb or mine :P
I love pineapple and I love salsa. This is divine over fish, as a side with plain rice, over plain salad. Simple and delicious.
I absolutely loved it! One of the best salsas I've ever had.
This is absolutely terrific! Served it as a side along with Chili Lime Chicken (recipe also from this site). I did scaled down the chili as I was afraid it woul be too hot but it turned out just great. Amazing blend of flavors, will definetly be making this again!
I served this over marinated salmon and my partner and I absolutely loved it. The sweet salmon and tangy/salty salsa was a hit. A wonderful meal and not too heavy. This will become a regular for us.
Terrific. So EASY to make. I had all ingredients except black beans so I used cannellini. Also used 1/2 jalapeno instead of the green chili peppers (wasn't sure what that meant, anyway). Every thing else was followed to the letter. Nice side to Cardamom Chicken w/ Salt & Pepper Crust.
I added 1 tsp of lime juice to give the flavors more kick. And, I didn't have chili peppers so I used canned jalapenos instead. Very good!
I have made this a few times before writting this. I am seving it again this week for a fish fry. The flovors meld together quite nicely. This is an excellent side dish for any BBQ.
Great Salsa! Everyone loves it. Very fresh!
I prepared this recipe for a Luau wedding reception and served it as an appetizer with the scoop chips and it was a hit.
I didn't have any fresh pineapple so used a can of crushed. My hubby really liked this. I think we'll try as a side dish to fish.
Great combination of flavors. I served this at my Luau party and it was a hit! Thank you for the recipe! (fyi, i chopped canned pineapple chunks in half because thats wut I had on hand)
I made this salsa last night and served along side Salsa Chicken and Mexican Sour Cream Rice (both from this site) and both my DH and I really enjoyed it. I made a few minor changes (omitted the green pepper as I'm not a fan and I used picked jalepeno instead of fresh). We really enjoyed it...it's even good as a side dish!
Very good. My husband said it didn't sound good and hates cilantro, but it seemed to have disappeared when placed in front of him.
I omitted the corn and beans, substituted lime juice for orange juice, and substituted fresh jalapeño peppers instead of the green chiles and it was delicious! We ate it over burgers and loved every bite!
mmmmmm delicious! I served this on top of seared tuna steaks and it was great - I even forgot the onion.
I used canned pineapple; I used this over baked Tilapia (light cajun seasoning w/lemon juice) it was wonderful! I didn't find it too beany at all as some did I used canned black beans and rinsed them first. (also I didn't have any chile peppers)
This is good, I made it exactly as written then thought it needed "something" to zing it up so I added a little italian dressing. We all agreed it's much better with it! Next time I'd take other reviewers advice and cut back on the black beans.
Loved this! Needed a last minute salsa for some fish, this was quick & easy. Didn't have the chiles or green peppers, just added extra red. Also used extra pineapple juice from the can (in the future, I just won't use the orange - tasted fine, but just easier with the pineapple). Will definitely make again!
This was good, but I would not make it again.
I took this to a salsa contest at work and won. Everyone just loved it. It has some great flavors and is a nice change from the tomato salsas.
This was just ok. I give it 2 stars because all you really taste is all the black beans. It was not as full of flavor as you would expect. I have had much better than this.
Summer/Spring perfection! Great on fish or just by itself! YUM!
We love this-it taste great. Made it for a Luau party and got rave reviews.
Sweet, spicy and delicious! Next time I will leave out the corn and black beans when pairing it with fish (or any meat). The beans and corn work well in it as a dip for tortilla chips.
Went over well at a recent b-day party. It went great with the island theme. People thought it was good, still there was a quite a bit left over, but I'm sure my hubby will help with the leftovers.
This recipe is a good start, but not great as is. First of all, the orange juice makes the whole thing taste like dessert because it's much too sweet. The pineapple is plenty sweet as is. Lime is a must and I added the juice of two. I might even add lime zest next time to increase that citrus-y element that makes salsa good. It also needed garlic because flavors this fresh need some warmer elements for balance. I added garlic powder to taste, which made this a four star recipe along with the lime. I did not add corn or beans because I don't like those ingredients in salsa. This is a good base recipe that becomes great with some tweaking.
I didn't use corn but I did add a little garlic. Sort of lacks any real flavor overall but with a few additions of salt, vinegar, pepper and lemon juice, that seems to help. I also did a trio of peppers for color. Overall good.
Wow. Wish I'd read the more negative reviews first, as I agree with many that the black beans overwhelm the other ingredients. I may try it again, but I will definitely omit the black beans AND the orange juice and add some fresh lime juice instead. Will probably double the fresh pineapple too.
this was a nice light snack.. i had to leave out the corn b/c i didn't have any and i subbed the orange juice with half pineapple and half lime juice.. tripled the cumin and probably doubled the cilantro.. added some chopped tomato.. also cut the beans in half as suggested by Jennifer Juniper.. used a couple of baby jalapeno's from our little plant.. left the seeds in one of them.. it added just the right amount of kick.. me and bf enjoyed this with tortilla chips.. ty for the recipe
This is great served over chicken.
I made this for a small dinner party and served it as a side dish. Everyone raved and even pressed into sharing this recipe(What a delightful problem). This is so bursting with flavor, so refreshing and unigue. This will be a "regular" special dish. Thank YOU!
This was awesome!
I didn't use the pineapple and it still came out GREAT (will use this recipe again)
This was exactly what I was looking for. It was very tasty and I will definitely be making this again. I served it over grilled chicken and yellow rice as a side. Perfect! The only thing I did different was add a chopped tomato.
I still prefer cowboy caviar. If I ever make this again, I will: cut down the cumin to 1/4 tsp. Fold in the black beans last. Too much stirring causes them to fall apart. I used a fresh jalapeno instead of chiles, just because it came directly from my garden. I think I might substitute mango or black-eyed peas for the beans next time.
Super delicious and will be making it often in the future. I haven't used corn and black beans though; served it with shrimp and mmm mmm mmm it was yummy!
The black beans overwhelmed this recipe. Next time I make it I will use less when I intend it to be a salsa. If keeping the recipe as written, I'll add cooked rice and make it a cold salad.
I followed the recipe as stated (except I used one green chili pepper instead of two because that is what I had on hand) and I was really disappointed with the results. I was expecting a very flavorful salsa but instead it was quite bland and the flavors hadn't blended at all - even though I prepared it several hours in advance. I made it to pair with grilled chicken and possibly use any leftovers as a dip with corn chips. However, we barely ate any of the salsa with dinner. I really like the concept so I will probably try it one more time and see if maybe it turns out differently, but for now it just gets a 2 star rating.
There's no need to look further for a great pineapple salsa. Genius mixture!! For the person who said it was too 'beany', you need to rinse the beans in a colander until all the sauce comes off. Don't just rinse them in the can or there will still be murky sauce discoloring the mix. I made it as described then made the following changes: white and green parts of scallion thinly sliced instead of the onion, doubled the pineapple, and also added the juice that the fresh pineapple spears were sitting in to the mix (still kept the OJ). I didn't thaw the corn as it immediately thawed when I stirred the mix and chilled everything. For the chiles, I used finely minced jalapenos with the seeds and ribs removed and it was still a little spicy -not too much for me but someone thought it was too much for them.
This was super easy and delicious. I will definitley be making this again, but not just as a dip. This will go well with grilled chicken, pork or fish as well! A hit at my company lunch...thanks for sharing!
I made this recipe for a salsa contest at work. It went up against 5 other 'traditional' salsas with tomatoes. It won the contest. It is sooo fresh and clean tasting!
I tried it without beans ,red pepper,cumin,corn .It tasted really great
I am not domesticated at all and this recipe was easy and fabulous. I wanted to make it as kid friendly as possible so I added a mango, used yellow instead of green bell pepper, left out cumin, onion and chili peppers and only used a speck of cilantro. In my own serving I added chili powder. My kids actually ate black beans!! I thought the beans were great, and I love that I got peppers and beans into my picky eaters (husband included!)
I absolutely love this recipe
The amount of the ingredients of cilantro,black beans and onions in this recipe are overpowering the rest of the ingredients. I cut those ingredients to tsp. The beans I put in was 1\3 of the can. I also put in chopped cherry tomatoes. I used lemon juice instead of oj. Use whatever kind of jar peppers you have. I used banana rings. I gave it 3 stars because of all the changes I needed to make,but the ingredients were Good together.
Served this over baked fish and coconut rice. Almost as good as Shaggy’s on the coast!
This salsa is great! I like how the cilantro really comes through. I don't like spicy foods, so I didn't make mine with chili peppers and just used a bunch of different colored bell peppers instead.
Great, easy recipe. I'll definitely be making it again!
WOW. Made this as a side to grilled Salmon. Absolutely delicious, cool, refreshing and best of all easy and fast. Added some fresh peaches which was another nice sweetness to the dish. We will be visiting this dish often this summer.
I made it as is and it was delicious! The sweetness of the pineapple and fresh squeezed orange juice complemented the jalapenos and peppers. Great idea to serve with chips while grilling. It doubled as an appetizer and my family loved it.
We loved it. This recipe was a hit in our house.
Loved it! Made it just as written and it was perfect.
I followed the recipe. Used it for a fall function for a group of about 30. I used jalapeno instead of chili peppers and only half as much. The folks who tried it loved it and the left-overs lasted a week.
I subbed lemon juice for the o.j., used jalapenos for the green chiles and went easy on the beans and corn per other reviewers. This looks very pretty and is perfect with Pastamore's coconut almond tilapia and some brown rice. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I have made this several times now. It is a wonderful side dish, full of the flavors of Hawaii. I have had it with barbecued chicken and with salmon steaks. It's a great side dish for a potluck dinner such as a barbecue and with the jalapenos seeded, it has just the right amount of heat. One of my favorites!
I tried the pineapple pesto for two reasons. The first reason was I had a pineapple to hand and the second reason because I am a fan of spicy food with a bite I wanted to make and try something different to enjoy and add to my repertoire. This salsa hit the mark and gave a different dimension with the added beans. Very tasty and an exciting accompniment to many a main dish. Definitely a future favourite!
I had cut the ingredient amounts in half because there's only 2 of us at home, and we didn't want to eat it all week. I used fresh corn only because it was on hand and only needed one cob. I used the single serving pineapple cups (the kind you use for lunch boxes) but I drained off the juice. Only needing 2 TB. of OJ, I bought a fresh, in-season navel orange and only needed half of it. Thank goodness most the fresh ingredients were on sale at the grocery, so this salsa turned out to be an economical dish. It had a really fresh tasted; I served it with ham balls from this site all over tortilla chips.
This was easy to make and we enjoyed it. I used all of the pineapple. I used a leek instead of a onion. And I did not use the jalapeno. We had it with a hamburger. I will make it again this summer.
Really nice, made a lot. Didn’t have chili ??, so I added 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes & 1/4 tsp cayenne. Yum!
My husband really loved this...I like that the measurements do not have to be precise...I left out the cilantro (hate it!) and the hot peppers and used only about a half recipe...this was plenty for 2. Served it with grilled boneless skinless chicken breasts and jasmine rice.
I am not a salsa fan but even I liked this. I doubled the recipe, and used canned pineapple because that’s what I had. The addition of the zest and juice of one lime took it from good to great. Fresh pineapple would be even better but I am reducing trips to any stores because of COVID-19.
