Ready Time

15 mins

Yields

10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple
  • 1/2 cup diced fresh cucumber
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

Start by combining the diced pineapple, cucumber, and red onion in a large bowl. Make sure they’re evenly distributed and not clumped together.

Next, add the chopped jalapeño pepper to the bowl and stir gently to combine.

Be careful not to touch your eyes after handling the jalapeño! In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, salt, and black pepper until the salt is dissolved. Pour this mixture over the pineapple mixture and stir until everything is well coated.

Stir in the chopped cilantro.

You can do this by hand or use a spoon, whichever you prefer. Taste the salsa and adjust the seasoning if needed.

If it’s too spicy, add a bit more pineapple or cucumber.

If it’s not spicy enough, add a bit more jalapeño! Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the salsa for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Serve the salsa chilled, garnished with additional cilantro if desired.

You should end up with about 10 servings, perfect for snacking or as a topping for your favorite dishes!

Notes

Pineapple and cucumber make for a refreshing combo, but feel free to adjust the amounts based on your personal taste preferences. Jalapeños can vary in heat level, so start with one and add more to taste if you like an extra kick.

If you’re planning ahead, make the salsa up to a day in advance, but wait to add the cilantro until just before serving for maximum freshness.

This salsa is super versatile – try it on tacos, grilled meats, or veggies, or even as a dip for chips. You can also customize the salsa to your taste by adding a squeeze of orange juice or a sprinkle of garlic powder.

Experiment and find your favorite flavor combo!
