Pineapple Salsa - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

This Pineapple Salsa is the perfect summer dish, bringing bright colours and flavours to your table. Fruit in a salsa may sound a bit odd, but when you try it we think you’ll love it as much as a more traditional tomato salsa.

The pineapple adds a lovely sweetness and acidity to this salsa, plus you can add as much or as little chilli as you want depending on how spicy you like it. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

Our Pineapple Salsa is at its best if you prepare it a couple of hours in advance, just to let the flavours mingle. However, if you’re in a hurry, there’s nothing to stop you preparing and eating it straight away.

What diets are this Pineapple Salsa suitable for?

This Pineapple Salsa recipe is suitable for vegetarian, gluten free, vegan and dairy free diets.

Please make sure to double or triple check all of your ingredients if you’re cooking for people with allergies.

This is seriously good, mega mega yummy!!! Made it to go alongside jerk chicken and Nando’s rice and it was perfect (and my favourite part of the meal!) Everyone loves it and I’ll definitely be making it again.
