What is Salsa?
Salsa is a kind of Mexican sauce used as condiments and dips for tacos, tortilla chips and other Mexican food. Salsa can be may be raw or cooked, and are generally served at room temperature.
Traditionally , in tomato salsa , fruits and vegetables used are blitz together in a food processor till desired consistency is reached.
But in this pineapple salsa , instead of blitz dicing the fruits and vegetables smaller , yields a better salsa. More smaller you dice , more delicious salsa turns out with the meld of juices from all produce together.
Pineapple Salsa Ingredients
To make Pineapple salsa few basic is easy to make with basic fresh ingredients
- Pineapple: Fresh ripe sweet pineapple works well in this recipe, though canned or frozen pineapple can be used , it will be too watery .
- Bell pepper: Green , Red or Yellow , any coloured Bell pepper can be used in this recipe, it adds some extra crunch and sweetness.
- Red onion: Onion’s pungent flavors balance out the tang and sweetness of the pineapple .
- Red Tomato : Sweet and tang of Tomatoes add extra flavor. Cheery tomatoes gives sweet taste while regular tomatoes adds sweet and tang.
- Jalapeno: Jalapeno cuts some sweetness and offers some heat to salsa , making it more tastier. If you have no jalapeno , you can try using green chilies as an alternative. I have used pickled Jalapeno in this recipe.
- Cilantro: Fresh Cilantro / Coriander leaves at the end , complete salsa without which I feel Salsa to be incomplete.
- Limes: Sour lime juice brings all flavors together. The burst of acidity is all you need in this recipe.
- Spices : None of the dish is complete without pinch of salt and pepper , which brings out taste in everything you add.
