pineapple salsa recipe

This delicious fruity salsa is perfect for any summer get together!  The peppers pair perfectly with the sweet fruit for just the right amount of kick on a warm summer evening.  And presenting the salsa in a pineapple will totally make you the queen of the BBQ.


  • 1 Whole Pineapple
  • 1 Small Purple Onion
  • 1-2 Limes
  • 3-4 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1 Small Orange Pepper
  • 1 Jalapeno
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Cumin


Cut the pineapple down the center lengthwise so the stem is also cut down the center. Do this carefully so the stems stay attached to each half (otherwise your presentation won't impress to it's full potential!)

Cut a grid pattern of squares into each pineapple half making sure not to cut through the rind. I left about an inch of pineapple around the edge of the rind. Dig out the pineapple chunks and chop them into very small chunks and put them into a large bowl.

Chop the tomatoes, onion, orange pepper, and jalapeno pepper into small (salsa-chunk-sized) pieces. Put those in the bowl with the pineapple.

Chop a small bunch of cilantro and put that in the bowl along with the salt and the cumin.  Gently mix everything together and squeeze the juice of one or both the limes over the salsa and mix again.

Spoon the finished salsa into the hollowed-out pineapple halves, then serve with tortilla chips.  Share with friends outside, under a cabana, on the beach, while wearing flip flops.
