Pineapple and Banana Salsa

Pineapple and Banana Salsa

I was planning on doing a spicy dish and I wanted serve it with a cool and refreshing fruity salsa. Sweet and soft bananas and juicy, tart and sweet pineapple seemed like an excellent combination and along with some sharp red onions and some fresh cilantro I was all set. I could not resist spicing things up a bit with the addition of some jalapeno peppers and I finished everything off with a splash of lime juice. I could also see adding a table spoon of marmalade to the mix but I held off on it this time.

I love sweet salsa, too - I just had mango salsa last night!! This looks so delicious - I don't think I've ever tried banana in salsa before!

Kitchen Roadie said...

Wow, I'll have to give this a try. I sometimes top grilled chicken and fish with a spicy pineapple salsa with red bell peppers and orange zest. Bananas might add a nice touch. Thanks for the recipe!

wackywoman: You got it! Though I went with a jerk fish rather than chicken this time.

Cara said...

Fantastic, Kevin. I made a black bean and banana salsa last summer that we liked a lot and I'll definitely be trying this out with grilled fish this summer!

Rebecca said...

Do you have to eat it right away? What happens to the bananas if you make it ahead of time?

Samantha said...

Mmm, I just made this salsa for dinner, but changed it up quite a bit and absolutely loved it! I will link it back to you when I post it either tonight or tomorrow :)!

Rebecca: I would eat it fairly soon after making it but you should be able to do a couple of hours.
