The other day, I wanted to make salsa, but I found myself tomato-less. Salsa without tomatoes? Was it possible? Spoiler alert: Yes, it’s possible. This sweet and spicy pineapple salsa is delicious with your favorite tortilla chips, but it’s even great on top of a black bean burger. I’ve also eaten it with a fork, but that’s nothing new.

I made this over Memorial Day weekend, and it was a perfect cookout side dish because it was easy to make ahead of time. You can even make it a day in advance, and it’ll only get better. Just keep it in the fridge in an airtight container until you’re ready to serve it.

If you like things extra spicy, you can add more jalapeno. I wanted to keep things reasonably mild because not everyone in my family enjoys things super spicy. But feel free to customize it however you like!

Once you’re done chopping your ingredients, this comes together quickly! Technically you could make this with cans of diced pineapple and save a few minutes of chopping, but I recommend fresh if possible.
