Pineapple is native to South America and was known and used by the ancient Mexicans. It is widely grown in Mexico and is one of the most popular fruits in a fruit-loving nation. This crunchy salsa has a wonderful scent and many uses. It’s great on anything grilled, served with tostadas as an antojito, stirred into ceviche, or as the base for a cold seafood salad. Make sure it has a powerful lime punch, and don’t be afraid of the salt; that brings up the sweetness of the fruit.
Combine the ingredients 1 hour before serving. Stir and taste, correct seasoning, especially the lime or salt, if needed. Use this salsa the same day it is made.
