Who says you can’t have fruity with spicy?
This delicious condiment contains an array of flavors – sweet, sour and spicy!

Not everyone likes ultra spicy, however, so this recipe includes ways to customize the amount of kick you want in your salsa.
For the purists….use a fresh pineapple.
For those requiring speedy convenience; canned pineapple works just fine.

Use this salsa to top your favorite protein or eat all by its hot self!

Ingredients: makes 2 cups or 4 servings

1.5 c diced pineapple

1 cucumber – peeled, seeds removed, diced

1-2 jalapenos (depending on desired kick – see below*)

1/4 c red onion, diced

1/4 c cilantro, minced

2 tblsp EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

juice from 1 lime

1 avocado, peeled and diced into 1/4-inch pieces

salt and pepper to taste

Here comes to tough part:

Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper.


Deciphering amount of kick:

4 Alarm Extra HOT: 2 jalapenos WITH seeds
