Tips

  • Use fresh ingredients when preparing salsa. Do not choose canned or frozen ingredients.
  • If you like this recipe spicy, you can add jalapeno peppers.
  • Cut the ingredients into equal sizes. Chop the pineapple, onion and other ingredients into small and the same size. This way, the flavors will mix better.
  • Use freshly squeezed lemon juice. You can microwave it for 15-20 seconds to get more water out of the lemon.
  • You can use parsley instead of cilantro.
  • You can add garlic, cucumber, black beans, corn or mango to this recipe.
  • You can also use yellow or green onions instead of red onions in this recipe.
  • If you want it to be more spicy, add more jalapeno or add lemon. If you want a fruity flavor, add fruits like mango, peach or kiwi.
  • You can keep the salsa in the refrigerator to mix the flavors. But keep in mind that pineapples will not look fresh.

How to Choose Ripe Pineapple?

The things you should pay attention to when choosing a pineapple are its color, smell and outer peel.

  1. Check the Color. Unripe pineapple is a gray-green color. The outside becomes bright green/yellow as it is ripped. When choosing a pineapple, make sure it is yellow first.
  2. Look at the Smell. Ripe pineapple has a sweet, fruity, tropical scent. Smell the pineapple at its base. If you can't smell anything, it's not fully ripe.
  3. Check Hardness. Ripe pineapple is softer than unripe pineapple. Squeeze the pineapple a little. If it has a slightly soft texture, it is ripe.

How to Store Pineapple Salsa?

Pineapple salsa will keep for up to 3-4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Fruits and vegetables will release their juices as they wait. Therefore, mix all the ingredients again before serving.

Can you freeze pineapple salsa? Yes and no. In fact, all salsa recipes can be frozen. But after thawing, the texture of the ingredient changes. In addition, fruits and vegetables are more watery. That's why it's best to eat salsa fresh.
