Fruit Salsa

Tropical Fruit Salsa

I love this with everything! This is a great topping for burrito bowls, spicy soups, avocado toast, avocado half, guacamole, grains, beans,... you name it!

Use one or more of fresh pineapple, mango, and/or papaya, but I don't recommend papaya alone as it does not give enough flavor punch. Also, you can use more or less jalapeno, depending on the heat of your peppers and your taste preference.

Peeling/coring/seeding/cutting the fruit is time consuming, but so worth it! I cut up a whole pineapple, a whole papaya (if available), and several mangoes, then use a portion for this salsa and the remainder for snacking, salads, smoothies, etc. Or save it in the refrigerator because you might be making another batch tomorrow... it's that good!!

In the summer, try substituting or adding nectarines or peaches to this salsa,

these are also fabulous!


2 c. diced mix of fresh pineapple, mango, & (optional) papaya

1 jalapeño pepper, seeded & finely diced (use less if desired) 2 mini red bell pepper, seeded & finely diced

3 T. finely chopped cilantro leaves

1 T. very finely diced red onion

juice of half a lime


Combine all ingredients in bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least an hour to allow flavors to combine. Serve and enjoy!
