Pineapple Apricot Salsa


We grilled pork tenderloin for dinner tonight and decided to dice up a ripe pineapple into a sweet and spicy topping for the pork. This salsa is perfect for pork, but equally great on chicken or with chips. One of my favorite things about salsas is that the ingredients can change based on your mood, what's available or how spicy you like your food. This is what we did tonight - but we rarely make it the same way twice. So use what you have and leave out what you don't. It will still taste great!

For this recipe (courtesy of my husband) you will need: 2 cups diced pineapple, 1 apricot (peeled and diced), 1/4 cup diced red onion, 1 Jalapeno pepper chopped, the juice of one lime, 1 garlic clove chopped, 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving so that the flavors can meld. Give a quick stir before serving and enjoy this fabulous salsa!
