What’s In Pineapple Jalapeno Salsa Recipes?

I love shopping for fresh produce through Misfits Market – they sell groceries, healthy pantry staples, and fantastic food finds (like meat and dairy) at a discounted price. Choose what goes into the box, save up to 40% off grocery store prices & save time with free delivery to your door!

  • Pineapple
  • Onion – I used a sweet yellow onion, but you could use white or red!
  • Tomatoes
  • Limes – freshly juiced!
  • Jalapeno Peppers – or a less spicy alternative, see note below!
  • Cilantro – optional, if you like cilantro. Some people don’t so you can use parsley instead, or omit the herbs all together.
  • Black Pepper – for a little kick at the end!

A Note For More/Less Spicy Salsa

This recipe is what I could consider “medium” spicy salsa – it definitely has heat, but it’s not overpowering. For a less spicy version, use only 1 jalapeno, or replace it with a milder green pepper such as poblano or bell pepper. For a spicier version, include the jalapeno seeds in the salsa for a fiery flavor.

How Do You Make Salsa with Pineapple?

  1. Finely dice the pineapple, onion, garlic, and tomatoes. You can do this by hand, or by pulsing the ingredients in a food processor. Add the jalapeno, cilantro, salt, and lime juice. Pulse again until your salsa reaches the desired consistency.
  2. If your salsa is watery (which it can be, depending on the variety of tomatoes you use), you can choose to drain the salsa before serving.
  3. Garnish with extra cilantro and black pepper, and get those unsalted chips ready for dipping!

What’s the Best Food Processor for Salsa?

When I have the time I like to chop this salsa by hand, but love using the food processor when I’m in a hurry. We have this fantastic food processor that has lasted us years and years, and I have to say I’ve been very happy with it! It gets weekly use, and is great for chopping ingredients for sauces, making hummus, and pureeing vegetables. 

It’s basic and gets the job done!  While you can chop this by hand (I did for the photos), or make this salsa in a blender, I prefer using our food processor to get the texture just right.

A No Salt Added Salsa Recipe For Parties and BBQs

This no-cook salt free salsa is a quick and simple recipe.  I love a good no-cook recipe for those days when I’m not feeling like standing around the stove, or for summer nights when it’s too hot to cook. I have a whole collection of recipes that require zero cooking at all, check them out here!  

This salsa comes together in about 15 minutes, and doesn’t require the stove or microwave to make. Just use a few fridge & pantry staple ingredients and you have a healthy meal ready in no time.  And very little to clean up afterwards… an added bonus!

  1. How much does this recipe yield? It’s difficult to know if I should halve it or double it when it doesn’t give an indication of portion size. Thanks so much. Looking forward to making this one.
