Sweet, fruity salsa.
Yup, I said it. And I might be crossing some boundaries here, but this stuff is ah-mazing. Seriously, throw out the idea that salsa has to be spicy and savory. Salsa can be anything you want it to be. And on this beautiful sunny day in June, I wanted my salsa to be cold, sweet, and fruity – just like the drink in my hand: this creamy, vanilla and blackberry pie smoothie. Yup, it is as good as it sounds.
Okay, back to the salsa.
The main ingredient? Pineapple. Oh yeah. It’s juicy, tangy, and sweet. And it pairs so well with the other, just as important ingredients. The cucumber here is mild in flavor but bold in texture. It adds an element of refreshing that is so loved in this recipe. Red peppers add a totally different kind of sweetness here. They also add a beautiful color to the salsa – which is always photo-ready for any of your summer soirees.
So what’s left?
Red onions, minced garlic, lime, cilantro, and salt.
These helpers do just that. They help bring the salsa together. These additional ingredients really add some extra freshness and earthy flavors that will wow anyone eating this salsa!
Skip those store-bought salsas and prepare a fresh, healthy one at home! This fruity salsa comes with some serious summer vibes. Enjoy!
