It may be hard for you to imagine a pineapple salsa like the one of this recipe since this salsa does not consist of a syrup that is used in desserts ... this recipe consists of an explosion of flavors .
It is a salsa in which the pineapple’s sweet flavor is combined with the hotness of the jalapeno pepper and they are wrapped in a bittersweet flavor coming from the vinegar and the ketchup. We know that is a combination out of the ordinary but its flavor is amazing. Prepare the salsa when you have guests and you will be renown as a culinary expert.
This pineapple salsa really delights palates for its originality. We recommend using it in some shrimps, over some breaded chicken pieces or over some pork chops – possibly over the pork is its best application. It can also be used in some Mexican appetizers but not in all.
