Orange Pineapple Salsa Recipe

| Last Updated: July 7, 2020 | , , ,

This orange pineapple salsa recipe is so simple, and yet so very tasty. It’s really a fruit salad, with thick pieces of coarsely chopped fruit, making it an excellent side for fish dishes or perfect as a palate-cleansing dessert.

The heat comes from a single jalapeño, and you can control the pungency by simply using less. If you’ve got a table full of sensitive taste buds, half a jalapeño may be just enough. Or, of course, you can always opt to double-down and add an extra jalapeño (or bump it up to serranos), but that’s just us.
