Dish of pineapple and jalapeno salsa surrounded by grapes and greens
Salsas, Sauces, Spreads & Seasonings

A Twist on an Old Favorite

Using pineapple instead of tomato in a salsa. In fact, “salsa” is just another word for sauce, and traditional Latin salsa condiments can use all manner of ingredients, from tomatoes and chili peppers to avocado, carrots and even chocolate. Choose a healthy-looking, ripe pineapple (an appetizing, sweet smell is the best test) or use canned -- either way will provide a sweet lift to a delightful array of dishes or as a dip without adding processed sugar to our diet.
