  • Add all the other ingredients and toss well.
  • Serve pineapple salsa immediately or refrigerate for an hour for flavors to develop.


Use fresh pineapple- fresh pineapple is perfect for this recipe. Use fresh, ripe and sweet pineapple for this. A ripe pineapple has a golden hue, smells real good and gives in a bit when you squeeze.
Dicing pineapple- Finer the better. You can use a food processor but I prefer to dice them using a knife. If you are making for a crowd, just use a food processor.
You can use pre cut pineapple slices from the stores and dice them finely to save some time from peeling and coring the pineapple.
You can totally alter the quantity of any ingredient here. Love onions, feel free to add more. Want to reduce bell peppers, go ahead.
