Lance and I love a good fruit salsa, and one of our favorite snacks we have during the day is chips and salsa. At the grocery store we need to buy 2 bags of chips and 2 bottles of salsa because 1 is never enough to last us all week! lol We are obsessed with Newman’s Own Peach Salsa. Something about the sweet and spicy is so addicting!

This weekend I wanted to make my own fruit salsa to go on our blackened shrimp tacos Lance and I were having for dinner. The Fresh Pineapple Salsa brought our tacos to a whole new level. I love the freshness of this pineapple salsa, and I can see this recipe being made weekly in our house! The good thing is I can just change up the fruit for a different flavor. Next time I may add peach or even mango instead of pineapple.

This salsa is great served in shrimp tacos, but I also think it would be delicious on top of fish and as a dip for your favorite chips. This Fresh Pineapple Salsa is a game changer to your everyday salsa recipe, I love the addition of fruit for summer, too!
