Fresh pineapple tomato salsa! Great with fish tacos or grilled steak.

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 can it be processed by canning the finish product

    I make this but put it on a low heat in a pot for about 20 minutes then put it in the fridge over night for the next day. Usually have it with jerk chicken on a salt and pepper baguette with lettuce. Great summer sandwich.

    I make a pineapple tomato salsa. I prefer very mild salsa, so I don’t put any chilies, just a bit of cayenne powder. I also add some red and green bell peppers.

    I love fruit salsas!

    Jerry- If your wife is allergic to pineapple, try using oranges, peaches or mangoes in place of. They are excellent substitutions. Each has it’s own “zing”. Yum.

    Jerry, I am allergic to fresh pineapple as well. Maybe canned (gasp) would be an okay substitute?
