Pineapple-Strawberry-Green Pepper Salsa

Some foods you just can't get tired of. For me it's salsas. I never get bored with salsas, the reason being, they are so fresh and vibrant in colors and the contrast of the ingredients, the crunch, the texture, I can go on and on with this.

Here is one more from my list of salsas.

1-½ cup fresh or canned pineapple, diced
¼ cup red bell pepper, minced (optional)
¼ cup green bell pepper, minced
¼ cup strawberries diced
¼ cup red onion, minced
1/2 tomato chopped
¼ cup fresh cilantro, minced
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 ½ teaspoon jalapeño, seeded and minced
¼ teaspoon lime peel, grated and minced (optional)

If using canned pineapple make sure you drain it well, or the salsa will be too watery.
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt.

I tried adding rock salt to the salsa and it tasted great!
Similarly if the taste is too bland for you you can add the red chili powder or cayenne pepper for extra heat.
