Pineapple Salsa Recipe
- 2 plum tomatoes
- Half a small red onion
- 4 inch long piece of seedless cucumber
- 1/4 cup lightly packed cilantro leaves
- 1 (or 2 depending on how hot you like it) jalapeño pepper
- 1 pineapple (you will only use 1/2)
- 1 lime
- 1/2 tsp salt
Dice tomatoes, onion and cucumber. Chop cilantro. Combine tomatoes, onion, cucumber and cilantro in bowl. Cut jalapeño in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Finely chop jalapeño; add to bowl.
