Pineapple Jalapeño salsa is a sweet and spicy recipe that is refreshing and perfect for adding a bit of sweetness to a dish. This is one of my go-to simple salsas to make. It is bright in color and balanced in flavor. I love to eat this instead of regular salsa since the pineapple gives it a sweet, fruity flavor. The depth of flavor will wake up your taste buds! My secret ingredient is adding a bit of jicama, which gives it a little crunch!
Variations of Pineapple Jalapeno Salsa
The best part of salsa is that you can add whatever you want! Some people like to add mango to add sweetness, but I like to focus on pineapples. Other common ingredients added to this salsa include green and red bell pepper, fresh garlic cloves, and avocado. Try out different variations of this recipe and make your favorite version!
What Can You Serve With This Salsa
I love using this salsa as a topping for all my tacos! They are incredibly refreshing to eat with tasty shrimp or grilled fish tacos. You can check out my shrimp taco recipe here! You can also use it as an ingredient for dinner since it adds just the right amount of sweetness and spiciness to your dish. Pork chops are one of my favorite dishes, with pineapple jalapeno salsa. Try it with fish dishes like Herb-crusted wild halibut or easy oven-baked halibut. This pineapple jalapeno salsa is also excellent for dipping with toasted herb pita chips.
How to select fresh Pineapple
When choosing the right pineapple for making pineapple salsa, looking for bright golden-yellow skin and a sweet smell is essential. You want to pick a pineapple that is ripe but not too soft. A good test is to press the pineapple’s outside gently; if it feels slightly soft, it’s ready to be used. Look out for bruises or moldy spots on the skin, as these can affect the taste of your salsa.
For the best result, let it set for 10 minutes before serving. Use with Shrimp Tacos soo good! Enjoy
