Pineapple Tomato Salsa

Print

A few weeks ago I got together with Garrett to roast some chile peppers and make some coconut pineapple cupcakes. We had loads of extra pineapple, and all the other ingredients for a great salsa, so naturally we put them all together, and voilá! A great combination. Use the tomato pineapple salsa with fish tacos, or over grilled steak or pork, or even wrapped up in a heated flour tortilla with a few slices of avocado.

    This salsa looks amazing. We’re having a chip and dip cook off at work and after my humiliating tug-of-war defeat, I’m thinking this will land me a much needed victory. Thanks!

    This is the perfect summer food. I’ve been making this pineapple tomato salsa recipe for family, friends, and co-workers since it was put up here. It’s always a huge hit. I think it tastes incredible as written, and could eat a big bowl of it all by itself. One of my friends added mango with the pineapple and she said it was really good too.

    My local market makes a great pineapple salsa similar to this one and it’s fantastic. Like Jeff I wasn’t quite sure of the combination of pineapples and tomatoes, but after one taste test, I was hooked. I’ll be trying this recipe next time I’m in the mood for a sweet salsa. Something about the prep work for a good salsa is very relaxing. It’s probably the rhythm of the chopping.

    I recently grilled up a whole mess of quesadillas stuffed with Hatch chiles and queso fresca and served them with the pineapple salsa. The combination of the tortillas crisp from the grill, the stringy cheese, the smoked chiles, and the sweet salsa was quite a hit.

    I can’t wait to try this one! My favorite pizza has bacon, green pepper and pineapple. The sweet pineapple compliments tomato and peppers wonderfully. I think I’ll try this as a garnish for smoked sausage on the BBQ!

    Another great salsa to eat with my blue chips. Looks like Abby and I think alike. Also would be good in/on a salad instead of calorie laden dressing.
