Easy Pineapple Salsa

This salsa is so easy to make and serves as a great condiment to tacos or as a simple and healthy appetizer when served alongside tortilla chips.  If you like it on the spicy side add a chopped fresh jalapeño pepper.  It will keep well in the fridge for a few days.  *TIP:  Most people don’t realize that pineapples contain a lot of vitamin C, which boosts immunity.  They also contain anti-inflammatory properties which reduces inflammation in the body.  Pineapples are also a great source of dietary fiber, which aids in digestion as well as Manganese, which strengthens bones.  Pile this yummy salsa on anything and you can ditch the guilt too!

Prep Time:  10 minutes                                              Serves: 6

Ingredients

1/2 fresh pineapple small diced

1/2 red pepper small diced

juice of half a lime

1 fresh jalapeño seeded and chopped (optional)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp ground pepper

1/2 shallot

Toss together the diced pineapple, peppers, salt, ground pepper and lime juice.  Grate half of a peeled shallot directly to the bowl.  Toss to combine all of the ingredients and allow to rest in the fridge for a few hours before serving so that the flavors can marry.
