Spicy Pineapple Mango Salsa
Spicy Pineapple Mango Salsa is a fruit salsa served with grilled fish, chicken, pork and most other Southwest and Mexican dishes. Either serve on the side, or spoon over your entrée. The flavors go so well together. It is also excellent with your barbecue dishes, like chicken or ribs. The sweetness of the pineapple and mango, pairs well with the tanginess of the BBQ sauces.
It makes a great fruity pico de gallo and served with chips. Use as a salsa for your tacos, especially fish tacos or tacos as pastor. Once you’ve made it once, you’ll find other ways to use it as a topping or side dish.
