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.
