Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple is such a perfect juicy fruit with it's vibrant tropical flavour that balances the sweet and tart. It is available year around at a nominal price. I made this salad with pineapple and a few other veggies in hand and it tasted delicious. Of course, you can be creative and throw in other veggies or even nuts. (roasted peanuts, almonds etc...)

Delicious, refreshing and no fat or cholestrol. This easy salad with pineapples and bell peppers is very gourmet-tasting! And if you have guests and have loads of cooking to do, here is an easy salad that can be done in a few minutes and it will definitely leave your guests wanting for more. Simply toss in some pineapple chunks with other simple ingredients and voila - a perfect salad that looks and tastes like summer itself! This summer salsa would be an excellent accompaniment to asian cuisine in particular (especially thai food) or you could even take it to a barbeque party or potluck where it's sure to be the talk of the party!

Try out this flavourful salsa and you are sure to love it.


Pineapple (cut into medium size cubes) - 1/2 of a whole (refer notes)
Red Bell Pepper/Red Capsicum (cut into medium size cubes) - 1 (big)
Carrot (cut into medium size cubes) - 1 (big)
Big Onion (diced) - 1 (small)
Lemon juice - a few drops (refer notes)
Pepper (crushed) - a pinch
Salt - a pinch


Take a serving bowl, add all the ingredients into it and toss well. And that's it! Cool or what?!


Choose a good ripe pineapple which is juicy and has a good balance of sweet and tart.

Make sure not to overdo the lemon juice because the sweetness of the pineapple is the key flavouring agent in this dish.
