Pineapple and
Jicama Salsa

This is a recipe that is simple and also original; in which various ingredients are used that are easy to find in any Mexican market.

The combination of the pineapple with the jicama is
very fresh but that’s just the beginning... as typical Mexican salsa also chili is used although it is not very spicy. Finally other ingredients are used that help to enhance the flavor of all the preparation and is also seasoned to balance the flavors.

– The concept of the salsa is different because the ingredients are cut into small chunks, it is not a liquid salsa.
