Love pairing sweet and spicy? This Pineapple Jalapeno Salsa will get your taste buds dancing. Serve with chips or as a topping for meats, tacos and salads. Paleo and Whole30 friendly.
We’re crazy about our fresh salsa in this house. Normally we settle for our homemade Pico de Gallo recipe. I crave that stuff and eat it with just a spoon.
Last fall we got adventurous and decided to try a new fresh salsa. A sweet & spicy one. And this pineapple jalapeno salsa was born. It has a lot of the same flavors as our favorite classic pico recipe does, but instead of a base of tomatoes, it has fresh, juicy pineapple.
So how do we like to serve this bright, summery pineapple jalapeno salsa? Frankly, I could also just eat this with a spoon which equals a pretty healthy snack. In fact, if you’re plugging through a Whole30 or giving eating a Paleo diet, this naturally sweet salsa may just be the fix you need.
Here’s a few of our favorite serving ideas:
Serve this salsa with salmon quesadillas…
….or jalapeno steak…
….or serve on top of a burrito bowl or dig in with simple tortilla chips for a flavor popping snack.
