Making This Tropical Fruit Salsa Is Easy
This chunky salsa is so easy to prepare. The hardest part is prepping the fruit (if you call that hard). Full instructions are in the recipe card below.
- Grill and dice the pineapple.
- Dice the mango and peppers.
- Add all the ingredients to a bowl, combine and you are done.
Mangos have always been sort of a mystery to me. I know they come in different varieties, and from my Jamaican friends, I am told some are way better than others. The mystery to me has been “how do you get the pit out”?
Pineapple can be grilled, or raw. I prefer the texture and flavour of the grilled pineapple in this summer salsa recipe.
Fresh mangos are so delicious. Frozen mangos are a great alternative.
Diced pepper can be red, yellow or orange. If you are not a fan of peppers, you can leave them out.
What is ginger juice? Super easy to make. All you have to do is grate fresh ginger using a microplane. Collect the pulp and squeeze. Fresh ginger juice in seconds.
Rum can be any variety you like. White or amber will work. I used Jamaican rum.
Leftovers will last for several days in the fridge. Best if kept in a sealed container. Alternatively, you can freeze this tropical salsa for up to 2 months. To use, thaw in the fridge. The texture will be softer, and the flavours will be milder. Perfect for adding to yogurt, pancakes, waffles and ice cream.
Serve this refreshing summer salsa as an appetizer with nacho chips. The perfect salsa for fish tacos. A great addition to any chicken, seafood or pork dish.
