Pineapple “Pico de Gallo”

A couple posts back, I made some adobo pork tacos and while eating them I thought to myself, “these tacos would be perfect with some pineapple salsa” so this past weekend, I tried it out. Well my suspicions we totally correct – the sweetness of the pineapple combined with the slight heat from the jalapeno really played up the earthy taste of the adobo. I still served it with some chipotle salsa for some added heat and caramelized onions for texture. It’s a ridiculously easy salsa to prepare, and can be paired with any type of taco (especially good with fish tacos!)

Pineapple “Pico de Gallo”

2 cups canned pineapple, drained and cut up into bite size pieces
1/2 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and chopped
1/3 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup cilantro, packed
Juice from 1/2 a lime

1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl
2. Squeeze lime juice over salsa
3. For best results, refrigerate a few hours to let flavors combine
