Super Easy Pineapple Salsa Recipe
Spring has FINALLY sprung and it’s BBQ and backyard gatherings season! This simple salsa is easy to make and a crowd pleaser! I was in the grocery store the other day and say the pineapple display and just HAD to buy some pineapple!
The VERY first step is picking the right pineapple. So how do you select the right one? Turn it upside down and smell it! People sometimes stare as I stand there smelling all the pineapples, but I swear by this technique. Flip it over and smell the bottom. If you smell not much i find they are quite ripe enough, making them not as juicy or sweet. Of course always watching out for overripe signs such as a fowl or mold smell. It basically should smell like a pineapple!
Now for the recipe:
- 2 cups of fresh pineapple cut into cubes
- 1 cup of fresh cut strawberries
- 1 tbsp of fresh mint leaves (basil would also be a great version too!)
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Mix it all together and enjoy! I find if you leave this one for a little bit or even night the flavours have a chance to come together, making this EVEN BETTER!
Did you also know that pineapples are a great anti-inflamamtory and has lots of vitamin C? Pineapples also contain a high amount of bromelain which can help treat inflamamtory conditions such as arthritis and sport injuries and is a wonderful digestive aid.
