I’m not a stranger to homemade salsa recipes. While most of you come here for the sweets, if you poke around you’ll see I have plenty of savory foods too. And that includes a variety of salsa recipes.
Normally, people imagine salsa to be a tomato based dip for your tortilla chips. And while that’s awesome and wonderful, if you’ve never explored FRUIT in your salsa, please give it a try. You can still get the heat by adding in jalapenos, but the addition of pineapple in the salsa gives it a sweet flavor.
It’s perfect on a chip or to add to your favorite fish or chicken recipe (like I did with this strawberry salsa).
This summer has been a strange one in our house. It’s the first full summer that our son is out of the house (he is in the Marines, and away from home). It’s the first summer our oldest daughter doesn’t have any swim meets for us to attend (she had an injury, all good now, but she’s not competing this summer, just working straight through to high school season). And yet, it’s also one of the first summers we have no vacation plans.
Bummer, right? Each day I go on facebook and it seems another one of my friends is at the beach, the mountains, or on an airplane headed somewhere fun! No worries though, I’m just going to enjoy every day and every bite of this Pineapple Salsa!
