Pineapple-Chilli Salsa

Wednesday, 9 May 2012

I can't stop eating this. It's bursting with flavour and all manner of good-for-you things.


Take one sweet, juicy pineapple. Peel it, take the woody core out and chop into small pieces.
Tip into a bowl along with its juice.
Take two red chillies, de-seed and chop finely remembering to wash your hands well after handling them.
Add to the bowl.
Chop a small to medium red onion and add that to the bowl.
Add about 200g of cooked frozen sweetcorn (or tinned).
Squirt on the juice of one lime and sprinkle on a heaped teaspoon of soft brown sugar.
Mix everything well.
Season with salt to taste.


Serve alongside grilled or baked fish, grilled chicken, sausages, steak or pork chops.
Congratulate yourself on creating something absolutely delicious out of fruit and vegetables.

    Looks increadibly appetizing, Sue. Healthy, fresh and colourful, as we like it here!! I usually use lime, avocado and red chilli to eat with grilled chicken or salmon and it is also very refreshing. Will try this one next time I get hold of a good pineapple!! x Pati

  5. Delicious.

    I'm going through a phase of doing something very similar with black grapes at the mo; pineapples would make a nice change.

  9. This appeals to me as heat of the chillies cutting through the sweetness of the pineapple = yummy! I love chillies, but haven't been able to go near pineapple for 5 years now since having my daughter as ate a whole one every day for 3 weeks to bring on labour-it didn't work and ruined my love of pineapple :( I shall give it a go all the same!

  11. I eel rather over excited about the idea of trying this out, I have a sweetcorn hater in the house but he does love chilli and pineapples, so I am thinking this might be the answer.

    Hello from sunny Malaysia :) I have been a longtime reader and fan of your blog and this is the first time I am writing in... Just wanted to let you know that if you omit the corn and instead add thin cucumber slices into the mix, you get an authentic Malaysian 'Acar Timun Nenas' that typically accompanies biryani and other rice dishes :) Love, D

  14. That looks good. And summery. If we can't have the weather, we can at least eat the food, right?

  15. Made this this evening. The pineapple took on colour from the red onion so it didn't look as vibrant as yours but tasted as delicious as you claim.

  16. Really nice, Sue. Even though I made it with a rather sorry-looking cut-price pineapple! The lime and chilli perked it up.
