Peach and Pineapple Salsa Recipe

Summer Yule
This peach and pineapple salsa is my family’s all-time favorite fruit salsa recipe. It's a tomato-free salsa alternative with a hint of heat.

Ingredients

  • cups fresh pineapple
  • cups fresh peaches
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro
  • 1 lime

Instructions

  • Peel and core the pineapple, and chop it into ¼-inch dice (0.6 cm). Chop the peaches into ¼-inch dice (0.6 cm) as well. (You do not have to peel the peaches.) Cutting the fruit into small, uniform cubes will make the dish look nicer. 
  • Finely chop the jalapeno and cilantro. Remove the seeds from the jalapeno if you dislike spicy heat. Juice the lime. You should get about 1 tablespoon of lime juice.
  • Combine the pineapple, peaches, jalapeno, and cilantro in a medium-sized bowl. 
  • Sprinkle with the lime juice. Chill until ready to serve. 

Notes

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!
