Spicy Pineapple Salsa, thanks to NomNom

Now this woman is an inspiration to me.  She lives a pretty hectic life it seems but still has time to not only cook delicious recipes, but post them online to share with amateur souls like me.  I think this one looked incredible, so if you’re up to the challenge, check it out!

When I’m in a hurry to get something — anything —  in my belly, I grab some cooked protein (e.g. Slow Cooker Kalua Pig) and top it with a potent flavor booster, like spicy pineapple salsa. This sweet, crunchy, spicy, sour, and juicy condiment elevates everything you spoon it on. Plus, it keeps for a few days in the fridge. Emergency flavor booster + emergency protein = happy mommy.

Here’s what to gather to make 2 cups:

  • 1½ cups (340 grams) diced pineapple 
  • 1 Persian cucumber, peeled, diced and seeds removed 
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, diced (remove ribs and seeds if you can’t stand the heat)
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • ¼ cup minced cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Here’s how to make it:

Combine everything in a bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.

That’s it.
