What do you do with fresh pineapple on the verge of going bad? Salsa of course! Nothing says summer than chopped salsa with freshest ingredients of the season. I picked up sweet pineapple couple weeks ago for my pineapple rice and pretty much used fraction of it with every intention of using the rest in some tropical smoothie but that never happened as life happened. Does that happen to you guys? You make grand plans and by grand I mean make smoothies from scratch (yes, that’s my grand life these days so don’t be jealous) but only to fulfill fraction of plans made as there is not enough time in one day to make it all happen. Well that’s me and my life these days.
Last week I realized I have two tupperware containers full of pineapple chunks sitting and waiting to be used, so of course nothing sounded better than some fresh salsa with pineapple. I pretty much used everything I had on hand. One can of black beans, avocado, jalapeño, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice. All chopped, seasoned, and chilled a bit. Just a note, if you are making this ahead of time, I would suggest adding avocado just before serving.
This salsa though guys is amazing! Sweet pineapple chunks combined with creamy avocado and beans, plus spicy jalapeño is what’s summer is all about. Serve it with tortilla chips or top your favorite grilled fish, chicken, or shrimp. It’s fresh, sweet, spicy and just perfect. Pretty much best of summer all in one!
