Now that the warm weather is here I am all about fresh produce and utilizing it in everything I make. I am a huge fruit freak and consume a shocking amount on a daily basis.

How to Make Strawberry Pineapple Salsa
- Gather all of your strawberry salsa ingredients and kitchen tools
- Remove the stem and skin from the pineapple and discard. Chop the remaining pineapple into tidbit size chunks
- Remove the stems from the strawberries and chop.
- Chop the tomatoes
- Finely dice the red onion and jalapeno (if using)
- Roughly chop cilantro and juice lime if using fresh
- Add all fruit salsa ingredients to a large bowl, sprinkle with sea salt and gently stir to combine
No, I do not recommend swapping out any of the fruits because it will change the entire flavor of the strawberry pineapple salsa. Although, you can use more of less jalapeno depending on your spice preference. Also, if you are looking for a similar vegan salsa recipe that uses different fruit try this Mango Avocado Salsa.
This strawberry pineapple salsa will stay fresh for up to 4 days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge. Also, I do not recommend freezing this homemade fruit salsa recipe.
The only canned produce I would use in this strawberry recipe is canned pineapple tidbits. Fresh is much better, but if you want to save some chopping time go for it; just make sure you drain the juice from the can.
I do not recommend using any frozen produce for this fruit salsa recipe, because when the fruit is de-thawed it will be mushy and leave your strawberry pineapple salsa a gross watery texture. Also, if you want to use bottled lime juice instead of fresh limes that is an option as well.
This strawberry pineapple salsa is great on several different dishes or on its own. Some serving ideas includes on its own with chips, with my Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken, over top of chicken tacos or in a burrito bowl for meal prep.
