Sassy Pineapple and Mango Salsa

by zesty on September 7, 2010 · 6 comments

I love salsa!  That is a given so when I thought about a menu items for Sunday to pair with the coconut crusted salmon – I knew it was a summer salsa.  There is something about summer flavors with crisp fruit and sharp vibrant colors makes everyone happy.  I chose to pair both pineapple and mango for the salsa and give it a little bit with cilantro and red onion.  No one in our family are really big onion lovers so I toned down the red onion to avoid any discomfort.  I find it is not really that sharp with the sweetness of the fruit.  To finish off the flavor matching, I chose to add a dash of hot sauce and cracked black pepper.

Ever try hot sauce with fruit?


  • 2 Cups of fresh pineapple, cut into small chunks
  • 2 Cups fresh Mango, diced
  • A little bit red onion, diced
  • 1 Cup of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Several dashes of your favorite hot sauce


  1. Put pineapple,mango, red onion and cilantro into a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Add lime zest and juice, oil and hot sauce.
  3. Toss well and let flavors mingle for at least one half hour before serving.
  4. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: This works very well with any form of meat or even as a vegetarian dish.  It would work great with a stir fry topping or even with cous cous.

Friday is here and the work week is over.  It is hard to believe that summer is almost passed.  Have a kick back relaxing weekend and I will touch base with you on Monday for something yummy.

Take care
