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.
Fresh Pineapple Mint Salsa
When I spotted fresh mint at the farmer’s market this past weekend, I couldn’t resist buying a big bunch. It was the smell. I couldn’t resist the smell. Thankfully, I remembered seeing a recipe for Fresh Pineapple Mint Salsa on Pinterest.
Wow! This salsa was so fresh and delicious. My husband and kids loved it too! So much that I should have doubled the recipe.
We ate it with tortilla chips, but it would also be great on grilled chicken or pork chops.
I really, really recommend that you use fresh pineapple. Along with the fresh mint, it’s what makes this salsa so special.
I picked up some of the prepared fresh pineapple in the produce section that’s already peeled and cored. It worked great and was just the right amount for this recipe.
This Fresh Pineapple Mint Salsa will keep for 2-3 days in the refrigerator. We will be making it all summer long!

Mini Pineapple Pizzas
There is a longstanding argument surrounding the merits of pineapple on a pizza. Here at Cooking Light, not only do we believe in pineapple as a pizza topper, we believe it can be the base too. Look for peeled and cored pineapple in your supermarkets produce aisle for even slicing. Canadian bacon adds salty, savory depth, which cuts the sweetness of the fruit while lending hearty texture. Use any toppings you like – we look to briny black olives, sautéed red onion, and fresh basil for a delicious flavor trifecta. This easy recipe comes together in 20 minutes and is very kid-friendly. Not to mention a genius way to sneak in an extra serving of fruit.
- 1 pound fresh pineapple, diced small
- 1/2 red onion, diced small
- 1 jalapeño, seeded (for less heat) and diced small
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, more or less to taste
- pinch of fine salt, to taste
- juice of 1/2 a lime
- In a bowl combine pineapple, onion, jalapeño and cilantro. Add a pinch of salt (to taste) and squeeze in the juice of 1/2 a lime.
- Toss to combine and serve immediately.

Fresh, tropical pineapple is one of those foods that makes your mouth water. Sweet with a little tang. Paired with tomatoes, onion, garlic and jalapeño peppers, it really shines. Plus, it’s light, so perfect for warm weather and relaxing with friends. kinda like this Strawberry Balsamic Flatbread and these Pineapple Meatballs Skewers I also like to make this time of year! Yum!
I have to say, this recipe is pretty darn simple to make. Well, if the pineapple stays around long enough! My fruit obsessed daughter is a big fan and always goes for the pineapple as soon as I bring it in the house. I can’t blame her, juicy pineapple is exceptionally good!
How to Make Pineapple Salsa
- Going under the assumption you have enough fresh pineapple and no one around your house got to it first, you need to chop it and the rest of the ingredients up.
- After you’re done with the chopping, you mix with the other ingredients, and then you can start munching. See, totally simple!
Tips for Making Pineapple Salsa
- If you’re looking to use your whole pineapple, start by cutting it lengthwise, just to the side of the top, and hollow it out to use as a serving bowl. Perfect for wowing guests and saving on dishwashing!
- Fresh Pineapple Salsa will keep in the refrigerator for about 5 days. However, it will become more watery the longer it’s left.
- How to tell if your pineapple is ripe? You should be able to smell the distinctive sweet pineapple smell when you put your nose close to the bottom of the fruit. Additionally, the pineapple should “give” slightly when squeezed gently.
This is a great make-ahead recipe. You can prepare it in advance, refrigerate, and bring it out when ready to serve. I actually prefer it the next day.

Blackened Cod with Fresh Pineapple Salsa
We’re at it again. Looking for a place to live. You’d think that moving 5 times in less than 5 years would make each move easier. It just doesn’t seem to be working that way!
Life gets busy and the next thing you know, your well planned schedule for what to do when flies out the window. So does your well intentioned menu planning!
Lately meals have been happening somewhat spur of the moment, and they aren’t always the most well-rounded. I’m working on changing that. Healthy meals will happen.
And they won’t take forever to make. Starting with this blackened cod with fresh pineapple salsa made with wild Alaska seafood!
Simple seafood meals are a great way to get essential nutrients without spending a lot of time and effort in the midst of your busy lives. Alaska seafood is high in protein, low in saturated fat, low in sodium and one of the best sources of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Just what we need! Plus, the cold water and natural environment of Alaska produces seafood with lean flesh, firm texture, and superior flavor that is full of high quality protein, vitamins, minerals and oils essential to good health.
And, of course, it tastes good. So, it’s easy to want to incorporate it into our menus. If you’ve never prepared seafood at home, give it a shot! It’s super easy.
Alaska seafood comes in multiple varieties and species and is fresh, frozen, and canned so there’s something for everyone’s tastebuds, cooking method, and budget!
Since living in the midwest doesn’t allow for much fresh seafood, we purchase frozen seafood. So, when I had blackened cod on my menu recently, I picked up some frozen fillets and the flavor was still great!
To make the cod blackened, simply mix together a combination of spices with a bit of canola oil and spread over the sides of the cod fillets.
Then all it takes is less than ten minutes in a hot cast iron skillet. Before you know it, you’ve prepared quality seafood in your own home!
To compliment the flavor of the cod, I paired it with a fresh pineapple salsa. It also is a super easy recipe loaded with fresh flavors. Quick, easy, healthy, and lots of flavor!
No more excuses. We can now all enjoy a healthy meal no matter how busy our lives are!
