Recipe Tips

Use Fresh Ingredients:

This recipe works best with fresh ingredients especially the pineapple and mango. Frozen just won’t have the same consistency.

Short Cut:

For a short cut, most super markets have pre-cut pineapple and mango in the produce section. It usually costs a little more, but saves you the time.

If the pre-cut pieces are too large, you can quickly cut them to your desired size.

Make Ahead:

The salsa is better if it marinates for an hour or two in the fridge so you can easily prep this ahead of time.

The more you can make ahead, the easier it makes party or gathering time.

Get Creative:

This would be really cool served in a hollowed out pineapple for an even more tropical feel.

You can also change up the ingredients to meet your preferences. Some suggestions:

Avocado (added just before serving) would be good.

Make it spicier by leaving in the Jalapeno seeds / ribs or add in an additional jalapeno or even a serrano pepper.

I like using a mix of white wine vinegar and lime juice in this recipe for extra tang and flavor, but you can just stick with lime juice if that’s all you have. The acidity helps balance out the sweetness of the fruit.

If your salsa isn’t sweet enough for your liking, try adding in a little honey or maple syrup until you reach your desired sweetness.

FAQs

How long will this salsa last?

This Pineapple Mango Salsa is best the day it’s made, but can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

What to goes well with this Pineapple Mango Salsa?

Tortilla chips are perfect for dipping into the salsa. I like scoops to make it easy to get more salsa on your chip.

You can also serve this as a main topping over a main dish such as fish, pork or chicken. It will also pair well with tropical style tacos such as Mahi Mahi.
