• 1 yellow or red onion, finely chopped

  • 1 pineapple, cored and finely chopped

Store bought salsa always makes for a tasty and nutritious snack, but if you have the time, homemade salsa with fresh fruit and vegetables is just so much better. Since I had lots of extra cilantro from my Pad Thai and Sprouts had a $1 pineapple sale, I decided that I had to make a sweet and savory salsa. This is great to snack on with whole grain or flax seed tortilla chips or as a condiment in wraps, fajitas or on grilled fish. I used a regular red pepper and some Cajun seasoning to make a mildly spicy salsa, but if you want to add some heat go ahead and throw in some chili or jalapeno peppers. It’s really all about personal preference.

Chop the onion, pepper, tomatoes, pineapple, mango, and cilantro as finely or as roughly as you’d like. I like the pieces to be relatively small so that you get a flavorful mix on each chip. Combine all of these ingredients in a bowl and squeeze lime and lemon juice over the mixture. Add the cajun spice seasoning (I used McCormick’s gourmet blend), salt, and whatever other spices that you love.  So healthy, so easy, and most of all soooo good.
