Shown here with herb roasted pork tenderloin on a bed of basmati rice, this is a very versatile salsa that goes well with grilled chicken or fish. We also serve it with pan fried cod or on it’s own with baked corn tortillas for a healthy party snack. Using fresh golden pineapple is essential to the sucess of this salsa; canned just won’t cut it here!
Makes about 2 cups.
1 ½ cups fresh pineapple, diced small
1 clove minced garlic
2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
Juice of one lemon
1 tbsp lemon zest, finely chopped
½ red onion diced
2 green onions chopped
1 tbsp finely chopped jalapeño pepper
1 tsp salt
½ tsp coarse ground black pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp brown sugar
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
½ red pepper diced small
Toss all ingredients together well in a glass bowl. Let stand for about 2 hours before serving, stirring occasionally.
