Philippines Pineapple Salsa


Philippines is an Asian country with strong Latin influences. An example of this phenomenon is this salsa. No special ingredients like Thai fish sauce, soy sauce and other Asian condiments are needed, this preparation is based simply on fresh ingredients!

You can use this as side to fish, meat and even to grilled meat. Simply delicious!

  1. Made for Culinary Quest #3 & this salsa was great, Adriana. Your pic convinced me I needed to make your recipe, but I had to put some thought into how it would be used. The solution presented itself when we had a “somewhat unexpected” guest in the afternoon yesterday. No problem at all for me !! I grabbed your salsa, a round of brie cheese plus some baguette bread & I was good-to-go — Paired w/a little sweet treat on-the-side to balance the sweet-savory salsa flavors. I do so love it when plans come together so easily as this one did. So tasty & pretty. Thx for sharing this recipe for the Quest w/us. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • WOW Marey Pat Frick! You are so creative! I love how you combined this recipe with cheese! ๐Ÿ™‚
