1 cup pineapple, finely chopped, 2 tablespoons habanero, finely chopped, ¼ cup white onion, finely chopped, 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped, ½ teaspoon salt, Lemon juice (as required), Optional: jalapeno, basil leaves, parsley, or mint for variations
Chop habanero, pineapple, onion, and cilantro finely. Wear gloves while handling habanero as it's hot. Remove seeds for milder heat. In a mixing bowl, combine chopped pineapple, habanero, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and salt.
Toss the ingredients until well combined. Serve with chips or nachos, or as a side salad. For more intense heat, add jalapeno or habanero seeds. For an Italian-style flavor, substitute cilantro with basil leaves, parsley, or mint.
Serve with tortilla chips, grilled chicken, bread, vegetables, sandwiches, or tacos. Experiment with different herbs and flavors. Use a food processor to reduce processing time. Choose the right serving bowl to highlight the salsa's color and texture.
