This salsa is refreshing and perfect for a summer sun kissed garnishing to give a tropical touch to any meal. Now that grilling month is in full swing we need to have easy recipes to prepare side dishes that will complement all those yummy grilled meats and tacos.

Making Habanero Pineapple SalsaYou will love the combination of flavors. It has sweetness, citrusy and spicy notes. And of course the freshness of the cilantro and the sweetness of the purple onion ties the flavors very nicely.

I use a pineapple corer for easy cutting of the fruit. Then remove the pineapple heart and use the pineapple as a bowl for serving and presentation.

I am loving that gadget you have to cut pineapple. Look so easy. Love pineapple anything whether it’s in salsa or chicken. The Habanero must really give it a good kick.

What a wonderful recipe!! I can taste it on my seafood, chicken, pork, etc. I can’t wait to make it and I simply have to get a corer — that is a great idea and a quick way to prepare the salsa. And let me tell you that I always think using the main ingredient as the serving dish is fantastic.
