Fresh Pineapple Salsa is easy to make and tastes great with grilled foods, tacos and tortilla chips. Make it festive by serving it in a pineapple bowl!
But have you ever tried fresh pineapple salsa? It’s easy to make, very healthy, and gives your meals a tropical twist.
Before we get to the recipe, let’s talk for a minute about the curious fruit called the pineapple.
I admit, I didn’t know a lot about this tropical fruit until I did a little research.
First of all, did you know it takes about three years for a pineapple to mature? And once harvested, they don’t continue to ripen.

If you don’t normally purchase whole pineapples because of the effort required to get to the actual fruit, check out these amazing all-in-one pineapple corer, peeler, slicer tools. I bought one, and it really works great!
While I’m sure you are used to eating salsas made from tomatoes, fruit salsas are a fun and flavorful twist on the classic pico de gallo or salsa fresca.
Some of my other favorites include Strawberry Salsa.
I also enjoy Mango Avocado Salsa.
But let’s get back to Fresh Pineapple Salsa.
I’ll be honest. Most of the time I end up devouring it with a bowl of tortilla chips and there isn’t any left to use as a condiment.
You can even stir it into basic guacamole to give it some tropical flair.
Or be like me and stock up on some chips and scoop away.
And don’t forget to save to save half of the rind to use as a bowl!
