Pineapple and Avocado Salsa

Posted on

I love pineapples, avocadoes and salsa! Why not put them together?! This is pretty low-cal and very healthy! It packs a punch with flavor as well.

14 ounces crushed pineapple in juice, drain
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 small jalapeno, seeded and chopped
kosher salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
1/2 small red onion, diced
1 medium avocado, halved, pitted and cubed
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

1. Drain the pineapple as much as possible but reserve the liquid.

2. In a bowl, mix together mix the other ingredients. If you want to add liquid to this to give more watery consistency, you can. If not, drink the juice!

3. Serve with chips or anything else!

Serves 6.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
