Light, fruity, and delicious…

As far as “chop and combine” salads go, this is one of the most delicious we’ve tasted. It’s so simple: pineapple, black beans, avocado, and  jalapeño pepper, of course, to light the match.  The bright grassy flavor of the jalapeño pepper not only brings heat, it meshes very well with the overall fruitiness and earthiness of the salad. It’s delicious served as an appetizer with tortilla chips, or try it simply on its own as a light side salad with fish or chicken.

You can step things up if you want by substituting in serrano peppers for jalapeños. They are oftentimes double the heat with a comparable flavor profile, so expect a most certain heat bump.
