Friday Finds {Vol. 22} - Pineapple Salsa

Since the new year, I have focused more on my nutrition. I KNOW that queso and chips is not a food group (sigh) so I need to lighten up our taco nights. This pineapple salsa was a perfect companion to our grilled shrimp this week. The leftovers were fantastic for a snack the next day.



Ingredients

2 cups chopped fresh pineapple
1/2 cup chopped avocado
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
2-3 Tbl chopped cilantro
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (optional if you want some heat)
2 limes, juiced

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Chill for 30 minutes and serve.

At first, I wasn't sure the onion and pepper would pair well with the pineapple, but I loved this crunchy combo. When I was little, my mom would serve pineapple with mayo and cheese. So weird yet so oddly delicious. This salsa brought back that memory - thanks, sweet pineapple, for being versatile :)

Make this for your taco night - the salsa would be awesome on fish or shrimp tacos. You don't have to ditch all the taco night goodies - this salsa gives your dish that unique bite it's been missing.

Happy Friday, friends!
