Save Recipe

This pineapple peach salsa recipe came about when I was coming up with salsa recipes for a local salsa contest. I had planned to enter my cherry peach salsa. Unfortunately, I was no longer able to find fresh cherries, so I needed to come up with something else.

My husband suggested a peach and pineapple combo, and this delicious peach and pineapple salsa is the result.

My family members are not the only ones who love this pineapple peach salsa recipe. A fair judge agreed that this was a great recipe and awarded me a blue ribbon! (And this high calorie granola won an honorable mention, so I really felt like a cooking star that day.)

I think you’ll like this recipe because you only need five ingredients to make it. Plus, you can control how spicy it is, depending on whether you leave the seeds in the jalapeno. You can use this pineapple peach salsa with Tostitos as dessert, or use it to add flavor to proteins in meals.

This is pineapple salsa no tomato, so it’s not a typical pineapple pico de gallo salsa. The pineapple and peach are front and center here, almost like a finely chopped fruit salad with a bit of heat.

🍑 Peach Pineapple Salsa Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make pineapple peach salsa:

  • 1½ cups chopped peaches
  • 1½ cups chopped pineapple
  • 1 medium chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • Juice of one lime

You need fresh peaches and fresh pineapples for this recipe. As much as I like the convenience of canned pineapples and peaches, this recipe is best with fresh fruits. I can’t get local pineapples here in Connecticut, but I was able to find some ripe fresh pineapple to use.

Using the best quality ingredients that you can afford matters greatly in simple recipes such as this one. Colorful ripe produce is a delight to the eyes and the main source of flavor here.

This is a flexible recipe that can be modified to fit your taste buds. Add some mango, habanero, red bell pepper, chopped red onion, garlic, or other fruits or veggies if you wish.

In terms of kitchen equipment, the only thing you need for pineapple and peach salsa is a good knife. A citrus juicer is helpful for extracting the lime juice, but you could also squeeze the lime by hand.

Notes

💭 Expert Tips from Dietitian Summer Yule

This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). I’m categorizing this salsa as a snack, but incorporating it into a meal is more likely to be supportive of a weight loss goal. 
I photographed the salsa with tortilla chips because that’s what people typically pair with salsa. However, I’m hoping to convince you to add it to meals instead. 😊 
The first time I made this, I served it over chicken with a side salad and sorghum (a type of grain). This time, I added wild rice and steamed broccoli. If you don’t like chicken, try serving this salsa over fish, pork, or even marinated tofu. 
I don’t find corn chips and salsa to be very satisfying, so that is not a snack I choose often. Putting this salsa over a source of protein in my meal is a far more satiating way to enjoy similar flavors. If I added a glass of milk to the meal shown, I’d have all of the food groups covered.
Don’t forget that you can turn up the heat by leaving the seeds in the jalapeno or adding another jalapeno to the recipe. Spicy!
