Tasty Tuesday: Tomato-Pineapple Salsa

Leave a Comment
Ahh... Tomato-Pineapple Salsa. This may be one of my favorite recipes that I've ever just thrown together. 

It all started when I had a tomato-pineapple salsa from a restaurant, unable to completely figure out what they used, I just created my own.

(Update: As I've been told by my friend Wythe, salsa is a summer recipe...not October. I say, eat salsa whenever you feel like it...Soon I'll have some fall-type recipes. Until then, salsa it is!)
Just some of the ingredients you will need...

Pineapple. (Obviously.)
Garlic. (I use the jar stuff. Don't judge me.)
Jalapeno. Or two. Depends on your taste.

Not mentioned: 

Do a little chop.

I just used half the onion.
Diced up the onion.

After giving everything a rough chop, I threw it all in a blender.

Onion. Chilantro. Tomato. Jalapeno.

1/2 Teaspoon of garlic.

1/2 Teaspoon of sugar.

Also add 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

There isn't a picture because well, I got the sugar and salt confused. 

Next, throw in the can of diced-green-pepper-style-tomatoes.

After a quick round through the blender...

Take some pineapple...

(I really think using the crushed style is easier but all I had was the chunks.)

So, I took the chunks, cut them up smaller and then tossed them in the blender for a quick round.


Here is what I suggest...
After the pineapple go through the round in the blender, 
toss the salsa in a bowl for it to chill. I think it taste better after it's chilled for a wihle.

Of course, taste it.

You may need more salt.

Or you may not need it chilled.

Or you may want to add extra jalapeno.

Or you may want to send me some.
