I Pinned this recipe for Salsa de Pina – Pineapple Salsa months ago, and have made it a few times since. Love it. We usually eat it up so quickly, I forget to take a photo. Perfect with fish tacos, enchiladas, or tortilla chips. It’s simple and fresh, and everyone loves it.
Everyone except one 15 year old boy, who will remain nameless.

Recipe Notes

-If making this ahead, refrigerate and add red onion just before serving. The acidity of the pineapple may make the red color in the onion bleed onto the fruit if prepared ahead.
