  • Pineapple
  • Onion – I used a sweet yellow onion, but you could use white or red!
  • Tomatoes
  • Limes – freshly juiced!
  • Jalapeno Peppers – or a less spicy alternative, see note below!
  • Cilantro – optional, if you like cilantro. Some people don’t so you can use parsley instead, or omit the herbs all together.
  • Pink Himalayan Sea Salt: I like to use a pink Himalayan Sea Salt in my kitchen, which has more natural minerals than plain processed table salt.  It’s inexpensive, so I’d recommend this salt if you’re looking for an easy way to level up your spice pantry.

A Note For More/Less Spicy Salsa

This recipe is what I could consider “medium” spicy salsa – it definitely has heat, but it’s not overpowering. For a less spicy version, use only 1 jalapeno, or replace it with a milder green pepper such as poblano or bell pepper. For a spicier version, include the jalapeno seeds in the salsa for a fiery flavor.

How Do You Make Salsa with Pineapple?

  1. Finely dice the pineapple, onion, garlic, and tomatoes. You can do this by hand, or by pulsing the ingredients in a food processor (I used a food processor). Add the jalapeno, cilantro, salt, and lime juice. Pulse again until your salsa reaches the desired consistency.
  2. If you salsa is watery (which it can be, depending on the variety of tomatoes you use), you can choose to drain the salsa before serving.
  3. Garnish with extra cilantro, and enjoy as a dip or as a condiment.

 

What’s the Best Food Processor for Salsa?

When I have the time I like to chop this salsa by hand, but love using the food processor when I’m in a hurry. We have this fantastic food processor that has lasted us years and years, and I have to say I’ve been very happy with it! It gets weekly use, and is great for chopping ingredients for sauces, making hummus, and pureeing vegetables. 

It’s basic and gets the job done!  While you can chop this by hand, or make this salsa in a blender, I prefer using our food processor to get the texture just right.
