RECIPE: PINEAPPLE TOMATO SALSA

I love the sweet spiciness of this salsa... pineapple, tomato, and a onion and jalapeno for heat. I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to jalapenos. I always add 1/2 of the recommended amount. Taste. Then add more if I want to. You can't take it out if it is tooo hot! Sometimes, I make the recipe with half the jalapenos then split it into two bowls. I add the remaining jalapeno to one of the bowls and label that one HOT for my guests who like a lot of heat.

 Pineapple Tomato Salsa is great on fish, grilled meat, pork, or even on its own. I always serve it with my  Slow-Roasted Chipotle Pork  or Tequila Lime Tuna recipe. (Photo by Arden Photography and bowl by Earthborn Pottery)
