Easy Pineapple Salsa

Fruit salsas have always been something I have avoided.  Something just didn’t seem right to me about spicy and sweet at the same time.  This last summer we went camping as a large group with my husband’s aunt and uncle, and they introduced me to this Easy Pineapple Salsa.  It took a little bit of coaxing but once I tried it I was hooked.  It was a little bit of spice with some sweetness to put out the fire.

During the season you could easily use fresh pineapple, but by using the canned version I guarantee that I can always snag the ingredients I need.  We go through a ton of canned fruit in our house so I stock up when they go on sale for $1.00 a can or less.  Doing this it makes this a really frugal fruit salsa that packs a huge punch of flavor.

I never would have dreamed that I was looking forward to fruits being in season so that I can tweak this recipe for various fruit salsa recipes, but I can guarantee this won’t be the last you see of this Easy Pineapple Salsa.  Want to learn the best way to cut a pineapple?  We have you covered.
