Sweet And Savory Pineapple Salsa

This sweet and savory pineapple salsa is great paired with grilled pork and can be modified to be sweeter or spicier depending on your preference.

Hi! So, remember back in May when I committed myself to writing a blog post a week? No big deal, right? Surly I can accomplish that!  And then, June hit and I published exactly two blogs up until this very point? 

Yep, it’s me – the procrastinating food blogger.  But, in my defense, we’ve been having so much fun this summer; I do think I’m justified just a little.  Friends and family visits, vacations, lazy pool days, bike rides – it’s hard for me to stay in the kitchen during these summer months, and even harder to get me to my computer when the sun is shining so invitingly through my window.

Anyhoo, I do have a quick recipe for you today that will have you in and out of the kitchen in less than five minutes, and you won’t even need to turn the oven on. See – what I lack in consistency I make up for in timesaving recipes and tips.  You’re welcome.

This is a delicious salsa that pairs equally well with pork (which is how we enjoyed it) as it does with a bag of chips. It’s totally good for you and delivers that sweet/salty combination that I’m always craving.  And, it makes a pretty side dish on your back porch dinner table. 

I’ll be back soon – I promise! (For reals this timeJ)
