Pineapple Blueberry Salsa

There was a time where I wouldn’t have even bought a pineapple. I had no idea how to cut one and was far less adventurous when it came to food and cooking. In the last 5 years, I have really become comfortable experimenting with new ingredients and recipes.

So if you are like me and have no idea how to cut a pineapple, I am going to show you step by step how I do it.

Step 1: Cut the top and bottom off of your pineapple.

Step 2: Cut the sides of the pineapple as close to the edge as possible.

Step 3: Slice the pineapple so that you have circles.

Step 4: The center portion can be hard, so you will want to cut around that circle to get the soft sweet part.

Step 5: Cut the pineapple into your desired size and toss the middle circle portion in the compost or trash.

I left my pineapple on the bigger side because I knew that I wanted to use it for salads and tacos. If I had planned to use with chips, I might cut a little smaller or throw in the food processor for a couple pulses.

After you have chopped up the pineapple, the rest is pretty simple.

  • Add your blueberries
  • Add chopped red onion
  • Add chopped mint
  • Add chopped cilantro
  • Add lime juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Optional – Jalapeno

Mix all ingredients together and serve! You can serve right away or I like to let my salsas sit in the fridge for a couple hours or even overnight. This helps the flavors mesh together.

Sometimes extras like salsa are overlooked when creating your meals and they can take your boring baked chicken to a whole new level. When you are working toward health goals these healthy flavor enhancers can make all of the difference when trying to stay on track.

Serve on tacos, salads, chicken, fish, and shrimp. There are so many different options for this yummy salsa.
