This simple Pineapple Salsa is a perfect top on tacos or pulled pork!

IT’S PINEAPPLE SEASON PEOPLE!!  I looked back through the LBO archives and realized I made a Pineapple and Roasted Red Pepper Salsa back in June of 2012!  I knew when I was 23 what I still know today… pineapple in salsa is a win win win!    Not realizing I had already made a pineapple salsa previously before sitting down to write this post, I laugh at how similar the recipes are.  Maybe in 4 years I will make a Pineapple Tomato Red Pepper Salsa and BLOW YOUR MINDS!  But today, it’s straight up tomato and pineapple magic.  The supporting characters are non other than our trusty lime juice, red onion and cilantro.  The 3 essential add ons to any salsa, guac or Mexican fare.

While continuing to browse my vault of pineapple recipes, I realized I like to put pineapples in drinks like smoothies and cocktails. And wine.  Don’t judge! But I know you love a good drank just like me.

Quick question.  Did you click on this post to see how to make a bowl out of the pineapple?  Well it’s pretty simple actually.  I chopped the pineapple in half and used a parring knife to go around about a half inch inside of the skin, then cut the inside portion into 6 pieces like a pie. That will loosen it up then just dig it all out. That’s it! 🙂 Now onto this salsa.

    I love the pineapple “bowl!” I’ve seen it used for teriyaki chicken before and thought it was a cute idea. I’ve been saving a lot of the tops by replanting them in water before transplanting to a pot to grow pineapple plants. Now I have an even more reason to buy more pineapples.

    Can’t wait to try this salsa. Thanks for sharing!
