How to choose a pineapple
- The quality of this salsa depends on the freshness of the ingredients. For the best experience, use only fresh pineapples. Absolutely no canned goods!
- Although it is available year-round, its peak season is from March to July. Choose one that is plump, heavy to the touch and firm but not hard, with no signs of wrinkles, dry eyes or soft brown spots. The leaves should be bright and green and not yellow.
- Give it a good sniff! A perfectly ripe pineapple has a slightly sweet aroma.
- Since the fruit will not ripen further after harvest, pineapples are usually picked when they are already ripe and ready to eat. If you are not using it in the next few days, put it in the refrigerator so that it does not ferment.
- For best results, cut the ingredients into very fine cubes.
- This salsa is very simple and only has 6 simple ingredients. Feel free to add red and green peppers and tomatoes for extra color, texture and nutrition.
- Not a cilantro fan? Swap for chopped green onions!
- This pineapple salsa is great as a dip with chips, but it’s just as wonderful served with grilled meat, chicken, or fish.
- Refrigerate leftovers in a container with a tight-fitting lid and use as soon as possible. Fruit tends to water as it stands.
