Pineapple-lime salsa


  • Prep Time5 mins
  • Total Time5 mins
  • Makes2 cups (500 mL), for 4 servings


  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 398-mL can pineapple chunks, well drained, or 2 cups diced fresh pineapple

  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice, about 1 large lime

  • 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint

  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt


  • Core and seed pepper, then dice. Place in a medium-size bowl along with pineapple, lime juice, mint and 1/4 teaspoon (1 mL) salt. Taste and add remaining salt, if you like. Stir to combine. Serve right away with Caribbean chicken. Salsa can be left at room temperature for up to half a day or cover and refrigerate overnight. Mint will darken as it stands, so if making ahead, add mint just before serving. Also delicious as a topping for burgers, roast chicken and pork.
