  • 1 pineapple, cored and sliced into spears or rings
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • juice of 1 1/2 limes
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 avocado, pitted and diced
  • your favorite chips for serving


  1. Heat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Grill the pineapple slices for 2 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes. Once cool enough to handle, dice the pineapple into small pieces.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the pineapple, red onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice, and salt (start with 1/4 teaspoon). Once mixed together, add the avocado and stir once more to combine. Season to taste with additional salt if desired. Serve immediately with chips or whatever your heart desires!

Recipe Notes

*I love serving this salsa with chips, but it's also phenomenal with grilled seafood and chicken.
*This salsa is best on the day it's made, but I've eaten it up to a few days after and it's still beed good!
*I've even put it on salads in place of dressing. SO GOOD.
