Nothing tests my patience more than sitting in traffic or cutting a pineapple.
But oh how I love sweet, ripe, juicy, fresh pineapple, and so I endure. I like to cut up a whole pineapple and just store it in my fridge and snack on it during the week, or make juice, or smoothies. And sometimes I make a pineapple salsa for fish. If you don’t have fresh pineapple or don’t want to cut one up (which I completely understand), you can always use canned pineapple or buy the pre-cut spears. This salsa is another great summer recipe, bright, refreshing, sweet, and slightly spicy! This week the temperature has been consistently above 100 and it’s been rough. But to think only about 1-2 more months of summer…wow time flies. Enjoy the summer recipes while you can!
