Ok I’ll admit it. I’m a little leery sometimes when it comes to mixing spicy and sweet, or savory & sweet, or even salty & sweet. But, I’m mature enough to admit when I’m wrong. This recipe had me a little curious to how it would turn out, and what exactly would be so amazing about it – knowing full well that I really just wanted to make a pineapple boat with some food inside.  So maybe if it sucked, at least it would be cool to look at?

Well, it was much more than that. In fact, I skipped the chips and just started eating it with a spoon. So. Dang. Good.

A refreshing blend of the pineapple chunks, along with peppers and onion, jalapenos (just enough to give that kick) and some sriracha. While we served ours with tortilla chips, we were quick to realize that it would be SO amazing over grilled chicken breast, grilled tofu (yeah vegans, I got you!), or even some salmon. It’s a perfect summer BBQ vibe we’re all craving right about now.

And did I mention how cool it is to look at? 😉

Servings: 1 Bowl
Prep Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Pineapple, halved
  • 1 cup Pineapple, diced (from 1 half of the fruit!)
  • 1 cup Bell Peppers, diced
  • 1 cup Roma Tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup Red Onion, finely diced
  • 1 Jalapeno, seeded & diced *optional
  • 1/4 cup Green Onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 2 tbsp Lime juice *optional
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

Equipment

  • Sharp Knife
  • Mixing Bowl

Method

  • With a sharp knife, cut your whole pineapple in half. Set one half aside (or slice it up and eat it for a snack while you make the salsa).
  • Cut a "bowl" shape (about 1/2 inch minimum from the pineapple's edges) and scoop out the pineapple fruit. Discard the "core" area, and dice up the rest into small pieces. This should yield you 1 cup of diced pineapple chunks.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine all your diced ingredients (pineapple, peppers, tomatoes, onion & jalapeno). Toss, and add in lime juice, salt & pepper, and sriracha sauce.
  • Scoop the salsa back into the pineapple "bowl" and serve!
