Homemade Pineapple Salsa
Me, I am so into pineapple salsa and love it on everything including chicken, fish and even pizza and eggs.
You can change this recipe up and I occasionally do by adding other vegetables such as green pepper and cucumbers to the mix.
2 cups fresh pineapple cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
3 tablespoons thinly slivered fresh mint or lemon verbena
1 to 2 jalapeño peppers (preferably red), seeded and minced (for a hotter "salsa," leave the seeds in)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, or more to taste
1 tablespoon light brown sugar, or more to taste
Place the pineapple, pepper, onion, mint, jalapeño(s), lime juice, and brown sugar in a nonreactive mixing bowl, but don't mix them until 5 minutes before you are ready to serve.
Taste for seasoning, adding more lime juice and/or brown sugar as necessary.
