Happy Cinco de Mayo! Who else loves the fact that the fifth day of May has become a day celebrated with margaritas and amazing food? If you are looking for a last minute sweet and savory, slightly un-traditional way to celebrate, how about a Pineapple Mango Salsa?
I love a good fruit salsa, especially when it has a bit of spice to it! Fresh mango and pineapple mixed with lime juice, jalapeno, salt and shallot makes for the most mouth watering appetizer, snack, or bite to go with those salty margaritas. And speaking of margaritas, have you tried this recipe yet? So, what are you making this Cinco de Mayo?
- 2 ripe (but firm) mangos
- 1/2 pineapple
- juice of two limes
- 1 shallot
- 1 jalapeno
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Peel and dice (small) both the mango and pineapple.
- Mince the jalapeno and shallot and set aside.
- In a bowl toss together the mango, pineapple, shallot and jalapeno. Squeeze juice of two limes over the salsa mixture and sprinkle with salt. Toss to combine.
- Serve with chips.
- *Optional- freshly chopped cilantro would also be delicious in this salsa!
