Summer Pineapple Salsa

A great idea for entertaining that is fast, healthy and has a touch of tropical, salsa! Here's a pineapple salsa recipe that I posted on (vegetarian forum). It goes great with banana chips.

You could also make some fresh plantain chips (refer to plantain chip recipe) and add some salt/pepper.

Pineapple Salsa:


  • 3/4 can diced pineapple, drained and rinsed
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1/4 bunch cilantro
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp spiced olive oil, or, use regular olive oil and add chili powder to taste


Rinse the diced pineapple in a colander and add it the rest of the ingredients. You can dice the pepper, onions and cilantro and use a hand blender just a few times until it becomes a chunky salsa texture. Try to keep in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to soak in.
