Pineapple Salsa Recipe

This recipe comes from a book called Healing Foods by Miriam Polunin, published by DK in 1999. I utterly love this salsa. So does Brian (“It’s The Bomb”). The kids…well, too many textures in there for them. They prefer their food to be uncomplex and fairly bland. This is not. Plus, this has little flecks of actual green stuff, which always turns them off immediately. If I had a good photo of it, I would post it here because this salsa is beautifully colorful.

Pineapple Salsa

  • 1/4 lb fresh pineapple, finely diced
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped red pepper
  • 1 tsp finely chopped green chili pepper (I use the canned kind.)
  • 3 tsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh mint (Gannon takes care of the mint in a pot on the windowsill.)
  • 1 tbsp lime or lemon juice

In a serving bowl, combine all the ingredients. Allow the flavors to blend for at least 10 minutes before serving. Chill,covered, until ready to serve and eat within 2 days. Serve at room temperature.

    Ahem… I believe I actually said, “It is da bomb!”

    This subtle distinction is critical to me keeping my ‘street cred’.

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
