Pineapple Mango Salsa - sweet/sour/tangy and choose your heat from mild to fiery

This is a lovely little fresh salsa for a dip or a side, mild if you’d like or fiery if you wish. The fruity pineapple & mango are set off beautifully by the lime/vinegar combo and the result is a bright, sweet/tart flavor explosion.

I vary the heat in the Pineapple Mango Salsa depending on what I’m serving it with. Sometimes I go full on jalapeno when I use it as a dip or as a counterpoint to something that needs a bit of waking up. Fish tacos or grilled chicken breast, for instance.

But when I’m serving something that has quite a bit of heat on its own, I tone it down and only use one jalapeno. The cool, refreshing salsa can be a welcome relief for something that has a lot of heat, like my Jerk Chicken.

The beauty of these little salsas is that nothing is really set in stone and they can be so easily varied depending on what’s in the fridge. Just remember to have a use for the rest of the fruit!
