Pineapple Salsa

Although I'm in full spring mode, Chicago weather has once again given us a doozy. It's been rainy and chilly for the last week and that has surely been affecting my cravings (ahem comfort food). Last week I made this pineapple salsa for a Cinco de Mayo party and got so many compliments that I figured I'd share this super simple recipe! It's the perfect balance of sweet and spicy without being too sweet.

Serve this over grilled chicken, fish, pork, steak, tacos, or just with a chip (or 20). Possibilities for consuming this salsa is endless. 

Tweak the amounts based on how many your feeding, just eyeball it!

In a medium bowl add a cup of diced pineapple (the smaller the better), 1 tbl finely chopped jalapeño, 1 tbl finely chopped red bell pepper, 2 tbl red onion (white works too but I love the color contrast!), 1 tbl chopped cilantro, the juice of half a lime, a pinch of salt, and some freshly ground black pepper. Toss together and it's ready!
I served this over grilled chicken and arugula for some greens. So yum!
